MDKSA-2002:087 - Updated MySQL packages fix multiple vulnerabilities

by Nikola Strahija on December 18th, 2002 Two vulnerabilities were discovered in all versions of MySQL prior to 3.23.53a and 4.0.5a by Stefan Esser. The first can be used by any valid MySQL user to crash the MySQL server, the other allows anyone to bypass the MySQL password check or execute arbitraty code with the privilege of the user running mysqld.


Package name: MySQL
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2002:087
Date: December 18th, 2002

Affected versions: 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0,
Single Network Firewall 7.2

Problem Description:

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in all versions of MySQL prior
to 3.23.53a and 4.0.5a by Stefan Esser. The first can be used by
any valid MySQL user to crash the MySQL server, the other allows
anyone to bypass the MySQL password check or execute arbitraty code
with the privilege of the user running mysqld. Another two
vulnerabilities were found, one an arbitrary size heap overflow in
the mysql client library and another that allows one to write ''
to any memory address. Both of these flaws could allow DOS attacks
or arbitary code execution within anything linked against
libmysqlclient.
