Description

Oracle MySQL 5.1 before 5.1.49 and 5.5 before 5.5.5 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by using the HANDLER interface and performing "alternate reads from two indexes on a table," which triggers an assertion failure.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_49
  • mysql-upgrade-5_5_5

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.
