Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA562] DSA-562-1 mysql

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-562-1 mysql

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several problems have been discovered in MySQL, a commonly used SQL
database on Unix servers. The following problems have been identified
by the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project:
Oleksandr Byelkin noticed that ALTER TABLE ... RENAME checks
CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table instead of the new one.
Lukasz Wojtow noticed a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect
function.
Dean Ellis noticed that multiple threads ALTERing the same (or
different) MERGE tables to change the UNION can cause the server
to crash or stall.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.23.49-8.8.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.21-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your mysql and related packages and
restart services linking against them (e.g. Apache/PHP).
