Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in MySQL, a popular SQL
database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies
the following problems:

CVE-2006-0903

Improper handling of SQL queries containing the NULL character
allow local users to bypass logging mechanisms.

CVE-2006-1516

Usernames without a trailing null byte allow remote attackers to
read portions of memory.

CVE-2006-1517

A request with an incorrect packet length allows remote attackers
to obtain sensitive information.

CVE-2006-1518

Specially crafted request packets with invalid length values allow
the execution of arbitrary code.

The following vulnerability matrix shows which version of MySQL in
which distribution has this problem fixed:

woody sarge sid
mysql 3.23.49-8.15 n/a n/a
mysql-dfsg n/a 4.0.24-10sarge2 n/a
mysql-dfsg-4.1 n/a 4.1.11a-4sarge3 n/a
mysql-dfsg-5.0 n/a n/a 5.0.21-3

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.
