Description

libmysqlclient client library in MySQL 3.x to 3.23.54, and 4.x to 4.0.6, does not properly verify length fields for certain responses in the (1) read_rows or (2) read_one_row routines, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-3_23_54
  • mysql-upgrade-4_0_6
