Mandalorian’s MySQL Security Review service provides a comprehensive assessment of MySQL database security. MySQL is commonly found in systems using the popular Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP (LAMP) stack, but can also be found in a variety of appliances, used with other web applications such as Ruby on Rails and sometimes even integrated with Windows-based applications.

The Mandalorian Approach

Following an initial scoping meeting or call, we provide a fully scoped quote for your MySQL Security Review. Our consultants perform the work in accordance with the agreed scope. Once the review is complete, our consultants produce a report with a high level executive summary, detailed technical section and appendices for any relevant observations requiring further detail.

Typical Findings

While conducting MySQL Security Tests, Mandalorian consultants encounter many different types of weakness. Items often identified include:

  • MySQL TCP/IP listener on external interfaces
  • No or weak password on administrative accounts
  • Dangerous stored routines
  • Excessive privileges for application accounts
  • High risk functionality enabled
  • Cleartext passwords in database

Why Choose Mandalorian?

Our consultants have been using MySQL for years (and more recently MariaDB). Our experiences cover all areas that impact on MySQL security, from SQL injection in web-based applications through to hardening MySQL connections directly, but the main reason more customers choose Mandalorian is simply that we’re the easiest company they’ve ever worked with. Our commitment to incredible support means you’re always up to date on what’s happening with your MySQL security test, and we try to ensure that there’s as little administrative overhead for you as possible throughout the engagement.
