Subject:MySQL"check-scramble" vulerability info
View as plain text  

Our security guy ran across an exploit in all MySQL versions before the
June releases. I am trying to find information on how to patch to fix this
vulnerability but I cannot find anything on MySQL's site! It is kind of
ridiculous. I searched for "check_scramble", "zero-length comparison" and
even "vuneralibility" (the latter only had 7 hits). Has anyone seen better
information on how to patch 4.0.18 to fix this bug?

Check out for more
