Vulnerability Assessment Summary
mysql-dfsg vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libmysqlclient-dev
- libmysqlclient12
- mysql-client
- mysql-common
- mysql-server


Description :

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL database
server.

Lukasz Wojtow discovered a potential buffer overflow in the function
mysql_real_connect(). A malicious name server could send specially
crafted DNS packages which might result in execution of arbitrary code
with the database server's rights. However, it is believed that
this bug cannot be exploited with the C Standard library (glibc) that
Ubuntu uses. (CVE-2004-0836).

Dean Ellis noticed a flaw that permits an authorized MySQL user to
