Description

Certain versions of MySQL for Windows are vulnerable to arbitrary code execution due to insufficient checks on user-supplied filesystem paths. If a privileged user can create a user-defined function, then this weakness allows them to load arbitrary DLL libraries on the system.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-4_0_25
  • mysql-upgrade-4_1_13
  • mysql-upgrade-latest

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.
