Description

The federated engine in MySQL 5.0.x before 5.0.51a, 5.1.x before 5.1.23, and 6.0.x before 6.0.4, when performing a certain SHOW TABLE STATUS query, allows remote MySQL servers to cause a denial of service (federated handler crash and daemon crash) via a response that lacks the minimum required number of columns.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_51a
  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_23
  • mysql-upgrade-6_0_4

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.
