Description Adam Mariš 2017-07-19 08:29:03 UTC
Vulnerability in the MySQL Server component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent: Client programs). Supported versions that are affected are 5.5.56 and earlier and 5.6.36 and earlier. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where MySQL Server executes to compromise MySQL Server. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of MySQL Server accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of MySQL Server accessible data and unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of MySQL Server.

Comment 1 Adam Mariš 2017-07-19 08:51:29 UTC
Created community-mysql tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1472716]

Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2017-08-03 10:17:18 UTC
This issue seems to be for the following change documented in the MySQL release notes:

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-57.html
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.6/en/news-5-6-37.html

  mysqlaccess now looks for its configuration file only in the SYSCONFDIR
  directory and /etc. (Bug #25043674)

and corrected via the following upstream commit:

https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/commit/788fb5bf678e2854fd2936cf6ac8d8f46f7c90c4

The problem fixed by this commit is only exploited locally (matching AV:L in the Oracle CVSS score) and does not affect MySQL 5.7, which no longer includes the mysqlaccess tool (its manual page in 5.6 notes: This utility is deprecated in MySQL 5.6.17 and removed in MySQL 5.7).
