Description

MySQL 5.0 before 5.0.92, 5.1 before 5.1.51, and 5.5 before 5.5.6 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a query that uses the (1) GREATEST or (2) LEAST function with a mixed list of numeric and LONGBLOB arguments, which is not properly handled when the function's result is "processed using an intermediate temporary table."

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-db-mysql

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
