|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: MySQL: Denial of Service (GLSA 200711-25)
Date: November 18, 2007
A Denial of Service vulnerability was found in MySQL.
MySQL is a popular multi-threaded, multi-user SQL server.
Vulnerable: < 5.0.44-r2
Unaffected: >= 5.0.44-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
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
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mysql-5.0.44-r2"
