USN-528-1: MySQL vulnerabilities
Posted on: 10/11/2007 07:30 AM

A new MySQL vulnerabilities update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-528-1 October 11, 2007
mysql-dfsg-5.0 vulnerabilities
CVE-2007-2583, CVE-2007-2691, CVE-2007-3780, CVE-2007-3782

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
mysql-server-5.0 5.0.22-0ubuntu6.06.5

Ubuntu 6.10:
mysql-server-5.0 5.0.24a-9ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
mysql-server-5.0 5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to affect the
necessary changes.

ATTENTION: A change was made to the init script for mysql. Now on
start-up, mysql is checked to make sure that the mysql root password is
set. If it is blank, a message is sent to the console and the system
logger alerting that the password is not set, along with instructions
on how to set it. Additionally, you can now use:

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql reset-password

to set the root mysql user's password.

Details follow:

Neil Kettle discovered that MySQL could be made to dereference a NULL
pointer and divide by zero. An authenticated user could exploit this
with a crafted IF clause, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-2583)

Victoria Reznichenko discovered that MySQL did not always require the
DROP privilege. An authenticated user could exploit this via RENAME
TABLE statements to rename arbitrary tables, possibly gaining additional
database access. (CVE-2007-2691)

It was discovered that MySQL could be made to overflow a signed char
during authentication. Remote attackers could use crafted authentication
requests to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2007-3780)

Phil Anderton discovered that MySQL did not properly verify access
privileges when accessing external tables. As a result, authenticated
users could exploit this to obtain UPDATE privileges to external
tables. (CVE-2007-3782)

In certain situations, when installing or upgrading mysql, there was no
notification that the mysql root user password needed to be set. If the
password was left unset, attackers would be able to obtain unrestricted
access to mysql. This is now checked during mysql start-up.
