1. Topic:

Updated mysql packages that fix various security issues are now available.

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386

3. Problem description:

This update fixes a number of potential security problems associated with careless handling of temporary files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2004-0381, CAN-2004-0388, CAN-2004-0457, and CAN-2005-0004 to these issues.

Oleksandr Byelkin discovered that "ALTER TABLE ... RENAME" checked the CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table instead of the new one. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0835 to this issue.

Lukasz Wojtow discovered a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect function. In order to exploit this issue an attacker would need to force the use of a malicious DNS server (CAN-2004-0836).

Dean Ellis discovered that multiple threads ALTERing the same (or different) MERGE tables to change the UNION could cause the server to crash or stall (CAN-2004-0837).

Sergei Golubchik discovered that if a user is granted privileges to a database with a name containing an underscore ("_"), the user also gains the ability to grant privileges to other databases with similar names (CAN-2004-0957).

All users of mysql should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

sha1sum lt;filenamegt;
