Debian Security Advisory DSA-1662-1 security@debian.org

Package : mysql-dfsg-5.0
Vulnerability : authorization bypass
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-4098
Debian Bug : 480292

A symlink traversal vulnerability was discovered in MySQL, a
relational database server. The weakness could permit an attacker
having both CREATE TABLE access to a database and the ability to
execute shell commands on the database server to bypass MySQL access
controls, enabling them to write to tables in databases to which they
would not ordinarily have access.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies this
vulnerability as CVE-2008-4098. Note that a closely aligned issue,
identified as CVE-2008-4097, was prevented by the update announced in
DSA-1608-1. This new update supercedes that fix and mitigates both
potential attack vectors.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.0.32-7etch8.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
