Description

Certain versions of MySQL contain implementation flaws that allow an authenticated user to bypass restrictions and create databases, or to elevate privileges by executing an SUID routine.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-4_1_21
  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_25
  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_12

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.
