Description

The mysql_create_function function in sql_udf.cc for MySQL 4.0 before 4.0.25, 4.1 before 4.1.13, and 5.0 before 5.0.7-beta, when running on Windows, uses an incomplete blacklist in a directory traversal check, which allows attackers to include arbitrary files via the backslash (\) character.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-4_0_25
  • mysql-upgrade-4_1_13
  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_7

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.
