Description Tomas Hoger 2008-02-19 08:30:13 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2007-6313 to the following vulnerability:

MySQL Server 5.1.x before 5.1.23 and 6.0.x before 6.0.4 does not check
the rights of the entity executing BINLOG, which allows remote
authorized users to execute arbitrary BINLOG statements.


Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2008-02-19 10:34:52 UTC
Upstream bug report suggests this issue only affects MySQL versions 5.1 and newer.

Looking into MySQL 5.0(.45), BINLOG SQL statement is not supported / recognized.

Upstream bug report does not link any public commit message currently, so I
can't tell from it what exactly was changed.  It seems that relevant change is
addition of following check to mysql_client_binlog_statement() in
sql/sql_binlog.cc :

  if (check_global_access(thd, SUPER_ACL))

This was added in between 5.1.22 and 5.1.23.  Affected function / source file
does not exist in MySQL 5.0.

Tom, can you please back me up?

Comment 4 Tom Lane 2008-02-19 15:48:48 UTC
AFAICS this is irrelevant to us, since we aren't yet shipping 5.1.x (much less 6.0.x) in anything.

Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2008-02-19 18:05:13 UTC
This issue does not affect versions of MySQL as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 2.1, 3, 4, and 5, and Fedora 7 and 8.  Only versions 5.1 and newer are
