Attached is the MySQL Windows Remote Exploit (post-auth, udf
technique) including the previously released mass scanner. The
exploit is mirrored at the farlight website
So in the case of this issue it appears to be documented (UDF, do
not run MySQL as administrator, etc.). As I understand CVE
assignment rules this issue does not require a CVE, however just to
be on the safe side I'm CC'ing MySQL, Oracle, MariaDB, OSS-SEC,
Steven Christey, cve-assign and OSVDB to the CC so that everyone is
aware of what is going on.
Just to confirm - yes, it's documented.
UDF is a feature that allows to run any code in the MySQL server
process. FILE privilege allows to create files. So yes, sure, with the
appropriate privileges and the appropriately configured server
one can create a file and load it as UDF. As expected.
