Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2018:1449-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1047059 #1047095
Affected Products:

  • An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.

    Description:

    This update for perl-DBD-mysql fixes the following issues:

    - CVE-2017-10789: The DBD::mysql module when with mysql_ssl=1 setting
    enabled, means that SSL is optional (even though this setting's
    documentation has a \"your communication with the server will be
    encrypted\" statement), which could lead man-in-the-middle attackers to
    spoof servers via a cleartext-downgrade attack, a related issue to
    CVE-2015-3152. (bsc#1047059)
    - CVE-2017-10788: The DBD::mysql module through 4.043 for Perl allows
    remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and
    application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
    triggering (1) certain error responses from a MySQL server or (2) a loss
    of a network connection to a MySQL server. The use-after-free defect was
    introduced by relying on incorrect Oracle mysql_stmt_close documentation
    and code examples. (bsc#1047095)
