Description Laura Pardo 2018-05-10 16:17:23 UTC
A flaw was found in the MMM::Agent::Helpers::Network::send_arp function in MySQL Multi-Master Replication Manager (MMM) mmm_agentd 2.2.1 (for Solaris), a specially crafted MMM protocol message can cause a shell command injection resulting in arbitrary command execution with the privileges of the mmm_agentd process. An attacker that can initiate a TCP session with mmm_agentd can trigger this vulnerability.
