Vulnerability in the MySQL Connectors component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent: Connector/J). Supported versions that are affected are 8.0.15 and prior. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows high privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where MySQL Connectors executes to compromise MySQL Connectors. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of MySQL Connectors.
Red Hat Satellite does not support using mysql as a back end database, thus the mysql connector is not used in any Satellite installation.
The package mariadb Java client is now available in Red Hat Software Collections. It can be installed this way:
# yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms
# yum install rh-mariadb103-mariadb-java-client
This JDBC driver works fine with both, MariaDB and MySQL servers. We recommend use of mariadb-java-client over mysql-java-connector where possible.
