Description Mark J. Cox 2007-02-16 13:22:27 UTC
There are a number of low severity MySQL security updates made in newer upstream
versions of MySQL.  These affected v1 of Red Hat Application Stack but were
fixed by v1.1 as it moved to a newer upstream version.  All require an attacker
to have authenticated access to the database:

CVE-2006-4226 VULNERABLE (mysql, fixed 5.0.25, 5.1.12)

MySQL allows remote authenticated users to create or access a database when the
database name differs only in case from a database for which they have permissions.

CVE-2006-4227 VULNERABLE (mysql, fixed 5.0.25, 5.1.12)

MySQL evaluates arguments of suid routines in the security context of the
routine's definer instead of the routine's caller, which allows remote
authenticated users to gain privileges through a routine that has been made
available using GRANT EXECUTE.

CVE-2006-4031 VULNERABLE (mysql, fixed 5.0.24)

MySQL allows a local user to access a table through a previously created MERGE
table, even after the user's privileges are revoked for the original table,
which might violate intended security policy.

CVE-2006-3081 VULNERABLE (mysql, fixed 5.0.19)

mysqld in MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service
(crash) via a NULL second argument to the str_to_date function.

CVE-2006-0903 VULNERABLE (mysql, fixed 5.0.21)

MySQL allows local authenticated users to bypass logging mechanisms via SQL
queries that contain the NULL character, which are not properly handled by the
mysql_real_query function.
