Description Vincent Danen 2012-09-26 18:38:56 UTC
It was found that the fix for CVE-2009-4030 was removed from the MySQL packages as provided with RHSA-2012:0127 when it was updated to version 5.0.95.  Upstream claimed to have corrected this in version 5.0.88, so the patch was removed when it did not apply.  As a result, MySQL version 5.0.95-1.el5_7.1 became vulnerable to CVE-2009-4030 again.

For most default or typical configurations, this flaw has no impact.  Please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=543653#c4 for further discussion on the possible scenarios where this flaw can be triggered.  If the basedir and datadir directives are unchanged in MySQL's configuration or command-line arguments, this flaw has no impact.
