Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.52008
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:348
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:348.

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server.

This update fixes several security risks in the MySQL server.

Stefano Di Paola discovered two bugs in the way MySQL handles user-defined
functions. A user with the ability to create and execute a user defined
function could potentially execute arbitrary code on the MySQL server. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the names CVE-2005-0709 and CVE-2005-0710 to these issues.

Stefano Di Paola also discovered a bug in the way MySQL creates temporary
tables. A local user could create a specially crafted symlink which could
result in the MySQL server overwriting a file which it has write access to.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0711 to this issue.

All users of the MySQL server are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain fixes for these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
