Description Josh Bressers 2005-07-29 12:50:40 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #158688 +++

mysql_install_db in MySQL 4.x before 4.0.12 and 5.x up to 5.0.4 creates the
mysql_install_db.X file with a predictable filename and insecure permissions,
which allows local users to execute arbitrary SQL commands by modifying the
file's contents.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-07-29 12:51:07 EDT
This issue also affects RHEL2.1
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-07-29 12:53:48 EDT
My mistake, this issue does not affect RHEL3 or RHEL2.1
