EnGarde Secure Linux Advisory: MySQL, MySQL-client, MySQL-sharedSep 19, 2003, 20:26 (0 Talkback[s])
EnGarde Secure Linux is an enterprise class Linux platform engineered to enable corporations to quickly and cost-effectively build a complete and secure Internet presence while preventing Internet threats.
The MySQL daemon contains a buffer overflow which may be exploited by any user who has ALTER TABLE permissions on the "mysql" database. Once exploited, the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code as the user under which the MySQL daemon is being run ("mysql" on a default EnGarde installation).
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0780 to this issue.
