Improper Input Validation


Severity Low
Score 2.7/10


The is a database clustering system for horizontal scaling of MySQL. Users can either intentionally or inadvertently create a keyspace containing "/" characters such that from that point on, anyone who tries to view keyspaces from VTAdmin will receive an error. Trying to list all the keyspaces using "vtctldclient GetKeyspaces" will also return an error. Note that all other keyspaces can still be administered using the CLI (vtctldclient). As a workaround, delete the offending keyspace using a CLI client (vtctldclient).This issue affects versions through 0.16.0 and 2.0.0-alpha1 through 16.0.0.
