MDKSA-2003:013: MYSQL Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the MYSQL package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:013 (MYSQL).

Aleksander Adamowski informed MandrakeSoft that the MySQL developers fixed a DoS
vulnerability in the recently released 3.23.55 version of MySQL. A double free()
pointer bug in the mysql_change_user() handling would allow a specially hacked
mysql client to crash the main mysqld server. This vulnerability can only be
exploited by first logging in with a valid user account.
