Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109424
MySQLd bounded to all IPs (per default without root password)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem, how reproducible and steps to reproduce:
If I install the latest mysqld package (Fedora Core 1 or Red Hat 9), per default the mysql daemon is bounded to all available IPs.
I wouldn't see that as real bug or critical security problem, but I personally think it's comparable as a Fedora installation without a password ;-)
So let me say: If you install a fresh system, you normally don't configure a mysql server at first, also there is a unrequested mysql root access by network possible...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Maybe it's a possibility to bind mysqld to 127.0.0.1 at installation. If the user needs external mysql access he can change that.
This is a duplicate of the mentioned enhancement. At the moment,
the default behaviour from MySQL is being used.
