[DSA1073] DSA-1073-1 mysql-dfsg-4.1

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1073-1 mysql-dfsg-4.1

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in MySQL, a popular SQL
database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies
the following problems:
Improper handling of SQL queries containing the NULL character
permits local users to bypass logging mechanisms.
Usernames without a trailing null byte permit remote attackers to
read portions of memory.
A request with an incorrect packet length permits remote attackers
to obtain sensitive information.
Specially crafted request packets with invalid length values permit
the execution of arbitrary code.
The following vulnerability matrix shows which version of MySQL in
which distribution has this problem fixed:
We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.
