Date: Fri, 7 May 2010 12:35:26 +0200 From: Oden Eriksson <oeriksson@...driva.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: A mysql flaw. Hello. With the mysql-5.1.46 release they fixed a security issue mentioned here: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=51770 [...] 3375 Davi Arnaut 2010-03-09 Bug#51770: UNINSTALL PLUGIN requires no privileges The problem was that UNINSTALL PLUGIN wasn't performing privilege checks before removing a plugin. Any user (including users without any kind of privileges) could uninstall any plugin. The solution is to verify if the user has the DELETE privilege for the mysql.plugin table before uninstalling a plugin. [...] A CVE should probably be assigned for this. -- Regards // Oden Eriksson Security team manager - Mandriva C∞O @ NUX™ AB
