Description

Tom Reynolds discovered that due to a packaging error, the MySQL X Plugin was listening to all network interfaces by default, contrary to expectations.

This update changes the default MySQL configuration to bind the MySQL X Plugin to localhost only. This change may impact environments where the MySQL X Plugin needs to be accessible from the network. The mysqlx-bind-address setting in the /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf file can be modified to allow network access.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-mysql-server-8-0

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.
