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

PACKAGE   : MySQL
SUMMARY   : Fixes for several mysql vulnerabilities
DATE      : 2004-11-18 11:48:00
ID        : CLA-2004:892
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 9, 10

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 MySQL[1] is a very popular SQL database.
 
 This announcement fixes several vulnerabilities discovered in MySQL:
 
 1.CAN-2004-0835
     Oleksandr Byelkin noticed[2] that ALTER TABLE ... RENAME checks
 CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table instead of the new one.
 
 2.CAN-2004-0836
     Lukasz Wojtow noticed[3] a buffer overrun in the
 mysql_real_connect() function.
 
 3.CAN-2004-0837
     Dean Ellis noticed[4] that multiple threads altering MERGE table
 UNIONs can cause the server to crash or stall.
 
 For Conectiva Linux 10, it also fixes a denial of service[5] with
 MATCH..AGAINST and a privilege escalation[6] on GRANT ALL ON
 `Foo\_Bar`


SOLUTION
 We recommend that all MySQL users upgrade their packages as soon as
 possible.
 
 IMPORTANT: after the upgrade at Conectiva Linux 9, the mysql service
 must be restarted manually. In order to do that, run the following
 command as root:
 
 # /sbin/service mysql restart
