Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated mysql packages fix minor security issues and bugs
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:569-01
Issue date: 2004-10-20
Updated on: 2004-10-20
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0381 CAN-2004-0388 CAN-2004-0457
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated mysql packages that fix various temporary file security issues, as well as a number of bugs, are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

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

This update fixes a number of small bugs, including some 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, and CAN-2004-0457 to these issues.

A number of additional security issues that affect mysql have been corrected in the source package. These include CAN-2004-0835, CAN-2004-0836, CAN-2004-0837, and CAN-2004-0957. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 does not ship with the mysql-server package and is therefore not affected by these issues.

This update also allows 32-bit and 64-bit libraries to be installed concurrently on the same system.

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

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system:
