Description

A flaw in the ALTER VIEW routine of MySQL allows for the opportunity of an authenticated user to elevate their privileges in certain contexts.

Solution(s)

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

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.
