MDKSA-2003:013 - Updated MySQL packages fix DoS vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on February 4th, 2003 Aleksander Adamowski informed MandrakeSoft that the MySQL developers fixed a DoS vulnerability in the recently released 3.23.55 version of MySQL.


Package name: MYSQL
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:013
Date: February 3rd, 2003

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

Problem Description:

Aleksander Adamowski informed MandrakeSoft that the MySQL developers
fixed a DoS vulnerability in the recently released 3.23.55 version
of MySQL. A double free() pointer bug in the mysql_change_user()
handling would allow a specially hacked mysql client to crash the
main mysqld server. This vulnerability can only be exploited by first
logging in with a valid user account.
