1. Summary:

Updated MySQL packages for the Red Hat Application Stack comprising the v1.1
release are now available.

This update also resolves some minor security issues rated as having low
security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Application Stack v1 for Enterprise Linux AS (v.4) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Application Stack v1 for Enterprise Linux ES (v.4) - i386, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Several minor security issues were found in MySQL:

MySQL allowed remote authenticated users to create or access a database
when the database name differed only in case from a database for which they
had permissions. (CVE-2006-4226)

MySQL evaluated arguments in the wrong security context which allowed
remote authenticated users to gain privileges through a routine that had
been made available using GRANT EXECUTE. (CVE-2006-4227)

MySQL allowed a local user to access a table through a previously created
MERGE table, even after the user's privileges were revoked for the original
table, which might violate intended security policy. (CVE-2006-4031)

MySQL allowed authenticated users to cause a denial of service (crash) via
a NULL second argument to the str_to_date function. (CVE-2006-3081)

MySQL allowed local authenticated users to bypass logging mechanisms via
SQL queries that contain the NULL character, which were not properly
handled by the mysql_real_query function. (CVE-2006-0903)

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 Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
