USN-671-1: MySQL vulnerabilities
Posted on: 11/17/2008 10:50 PM

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

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-671-1 November 17, 2008
mysql-dfsg-5.0 vulnerabilities
CVE-2008-2079, CVE-2008-3963, CVE-2008-4097, CVE-2008-4098
==========================
==========================
=========

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

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 5.0.22-0ubuntu6.06.11

Ubuntu 7.10:
mysql-server-5.0 5.0.45-1ubuntu3.4

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
mysql-server-5.0 5.0.51a-3ubuntu5.4

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

Details follow:

It was discovered that MySQL could be made to overwrite existing table
files in the data directory. An authenticated user could use the
DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options to possibly bypass privilege
checks. This update alters table creation behaviour by disallowing the
use of the MySQL data directory in DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY
options. (CVE-2008-2079, CVE-2008-4097 and CVE-2008-4098)

It was discovered that MySQL did not handle empty bit-string literals
properly. An attacker could exploit this problem and cause the MySQL
server to crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3963)
