Ubuntu: MySQL vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu There are multiple vulnerabilities in MySQL. The following CVEIDs have been addressed: CVE-2006-4227 CVE-2006-4031
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-338-1         September 05, 2006
mysql-dfsg-5.0 vulnerabilities
CVE-2006-4031, CVE-2006-4227

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  mysql-server-5.0                         5.0.22-0ubuntu6.06.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Dmitri Lenev discovered that arguments of setuid SQL functions were
evaluated in the security context of the functions' definer instead of
its caller. An authenticated user with the privilege to call such a
function could exploit this to execute arbitrary statements with the
privileges of the definer of that function. (CVE-2006-4227)

Peter Gulutzan reported a potentially confusing situation of the MERGE
table engine. If an user creates a merge table, and the administrator
later revokes privileges on the original table only (without changing
the privileges on the merge table), that user still has access to the
data by using the merge table. This is intended behaviour, but might
be undesirable in some installations; this update introduces a new
server option "--skip-merge" which disables the MERGE engine
completely. (CVE-2006-4031)
