Debian Security Advisory DSA 483-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
April 14th, 2004 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : mysql
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file creation
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CAN-2004-0381 CAN-2004-0388
Bugtraq ID : 9976

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in mysql, a common database system. Two scripts contained in the package don't create temporary files in a secure fashion. This could allow a local attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking the MySQL server, which is often the root user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures identifies the following problems:

CAN-2004-0381

The script mysqlbug in MySQL allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.

CAN-2004-0388

The script mysqld_multi in MySQL allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 3.23.49-8.6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed in version 4.0.18-6 of mysql-dfsg.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql, mysql-dfsg and related packages.
