Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: MySQL: Denial of Service (GLSA 200711-25)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 18, 2007
Bug(s): #198988
ID: 200711-25

Synopsis


A Denial of Service vulnerability was found in MySQL.


Background


MySQL is a popular multi-threaded, multi-user SQL server.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/mysql
Vulnerable: < 5.0.44-r2
Unaffected: >= 5.0.44-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Joe Gallo and Artem Russakovskii reported an error in the
convert_search_mode_to_innobase() function in ha_innodb.cc in the
InnoDB engine that is leading to a failed assertion when handling
CONTAINS operations.


Impact


A remote authenticated attacker with ALTER privileges could send a
specially crafted request to a vulnerable database server possibly
leading to a Denial of Service.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mysql-5.0.44-r2"


References

CVE-2007-5925
