Debian Security Advisory DSA 829-1 security@debian.org

Package : mysql
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2558
BugTraq ID : 14509

A stack-based buffer overflow in the init_syms function of MySQL, a
popular database, has been discovered that allows remote authenticated
users who can create user-defined functions to execute arbitrary code
via a long function_name field. The ability to create user-defined
functions is not typically granted to untrusted users.

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

woody sarge sid
mysql 3.23.49-8.14 n/a n/a
mysql-dfsg n/a 4.0.24-10sarge1 4.0.24-10sarge1
mysql-dfsg-4.1 n/a 4.1.11a-4sarge2 4.1.14-2
mysql-dfsg-5.0 n/a n/a 5.0.11beta-3

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.
