CVE-2003-0150: The mysql package contains a bug whereby a malicious
user, granted certain permissions within mysql, could create a
configuration file which would cause the mysql server to run as root,
or any other user, rather than the mysql user.
For the stable distribution (woody) both problems have been fixed in
version 3.23.49-8.4.
