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 execute arbitrary code by using CREATE FUNCTION to access libc calls, as demonstrated by using strcat, on_exit, and exit.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-mysql
  • suse-upgrade-mysql-max

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.
