Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.50499
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-63-1 (mysql-dfsg)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-63-1 (mysql-dfsg)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to mysql-dfsg
announced via advisory USN-63-1.

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena noticed that the 'mysqlaccess' program
created temporary files in an insecure manner. This could allow a
symbolic link attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
privileges of the user invoking the program.

The following packages are affected: mysql-client

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4.0.20-2ubuntu1.2. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
