Title: MySQL: SQL Injection (GLSA 200606-13)
Date: June 11, 2006
Updated: December 13, 2006
MySQL is vulnerable to an SQL Injection flaw in the multi-byte encoding process.
MySQL is a popular multi-threaded, multi-user SQL server.
Vulnerable: < 5.0.22
Unaffected: >= 5.0.22
Unaffected: >= 4.1.20 < 4.1.21
Unaffected: >= 4.1.21 < 4.1.22
Unaffected: >= 4.1.22 < 4.1.23
Unaffected: < 4.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
MySQL is vulnerable to an injection flaw in mysql_real_escape() when used with multi-byte characters.
Due to a flaw in the multi-byte character process, an attacker is still able to inject arbitary SQL statements into the MySQL server for execution.
There are a few workarounds available: NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES mode as a workaround for a bug in mysql_real_escape_string(): SET sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'; SET GLOBAL sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'; and server command line options: --sql-mode=NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES.
All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mysql-4.1.20"
