Description

SQL injection vulnerability in MySQL 4.1.x before 4.1.20 and 5.0.x before 5.0.22 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands via crafted multibyte encodings in character sets such as SJIS, BIG5, and GBK, which are not properly handled when the mysql_real_escape function is used to escape the input.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-4_1_20
  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_22
  • 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.
