Description

Versions of MySQL server before 5.0.52 and 5.1.23 suffer from a denial of service vulnerability via a flaw in the federated engine. On issuance of a command to a remote server (e.g., SHOW TABLE STATUS LIKE 'table'), the local federated server expects a query to contain fourteen columns. A response with less than fourteen columns causes the federated server to crash.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_52
  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_23
