CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : MySQL
SUMMARY   : Several Vulnerabilities
DATE      : 2003-09-18 18:59:00
ID        : CLA-2003:743
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

DESCRIPTION
 MySQL is a very popular SQL database, distributed under the GNU-GPL
 license.
 
 This update fixes three vulnerabilities in the versions of MySQL
 distributed with Conectiva Linux:
 
 1. Double free vulnerability[1] in the mysql_change_user() function.
 An attacker with access to the MySQL server can exploit this
 vulnerability to at least cause a denial of service condition (crash
 the MySQL server process) by sending specially crafted data from a
 client application.
 
 2. World writeable configuration files vulnerability[2]. An attacker
 with access to the MySQL server can create/overwrite a MySQL
 configuration file using a "SELECT * INFO OUTFILE" command. This can
 be exploited to, for example, cause MySQL to run as root upon
 restart.
 
 3. Password handler buffer overflow vulnerability. Frank Denis
 reported[3] a buffer overflow vulnerability in the password handling
 functions of MySQL. An attacker with global administrative privileges
 on the MySQL server can exploit this vulnerability to execute
 arbitrary code with the privileges of the user the MySQL server
 process is running as.
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
 assigned the names CAN-2003-0073[4], CAN-2003-0150[5] and
 CAN-2003-0780[6] to these issues, respectively.
 
 This update brings the latest stable MySQL version available from the
 3.23 serie (3.23.58). Besides the fix or the aforementioned
 vulnerabilities, this new version includes several other bugfixes and
 minor enhancements, which can be seen in the project changelogs[7].


SOLUTION
 We recommend that all MySQL users upgrade their packages as soon as
 possible.
 
 IMPORTANT: after the upgrade the mysql service must be restarted
 manually. In order to do that, run the following command as root:
 
 # /sbin/service mysql restart
