Description

MySQL 4.0.23 and earlier, and 4.1.x up to 4.1.10, allows remote authenticated users with INSERT and DELETE privileges to bypass library path restrictions and execute arbitrary libraries by using INSERT INTO to modify the mysql.func table, which is processed by the udf_init function.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-4_0_24
  • mysql-upgrade-4_1_10a
  • 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.
