Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-279

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-279
Posted Oct 15, 2009
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-279 - It was discovered that mysql-ocaml, OCaml bindings for MySql, was missing a function to call mysql_real_escape_string(). This is needed, because mysql_real_escape_string() honours the charset of the connection and prevents insufficient escaping, when certain multibyte character encodings are used. The added function is called real_escape() and takes the established database connection as a first argument. The old escape_string() was kept for backwards compatibility. This update fixes this vulnerability.

Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in ocaml-mysql:

It was discovered that mysql-ocaml, OCaml bindings for MySql,
was missing a function to call mysql_real_escape_string(). This
is needed, because mysql_real_escape_string() honours the charset
of the connection and prevents insufficient escaping, when certain
multibyte character encodings are used. The added function is called
real_escape() and takes the established database connection as a first
argument. The old escape_string() was kept for backwards compatibility
(CVE-2009-2942).

This update fixes this vulnerability.
