3. Description:

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. It consists of
the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) and many client programs and libraries.

The MySQL PolyFromWKB() function did not sanity check Well-Known Binary
(WKB) data, which could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to crash
mysqld. (CVE-2010-3840)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed certain JOIN queries could allow a
remote, authenticated attacker to cause excessive CPU use (up to 100%), if
a stored procedure contained JOIN queries, and that procedure was executed
twice in sequence. (CVE-2010-3839)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed queries that provide a mixture of numeric
and longblob data types to the LEAST or GREATEST function, could allow a
remote, authenticated attacker to crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3838)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed PREPARE statements containing both
GROUP_CONCAT and the WITH ROLLUP modifier could allow a remote,
authenticated attacker to crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3837)

MySQL did not properly pre-evaluate LIKE arguments in view prepare mode,
possibly allowing a remote, authenticated attacker to crash mysqld.
(CVE-2010-3836)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed statements that assign a value to a
user-defined variable and that also contain a logical value evaluation
could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to crash mysqld.
(CVE-2010-3835)

A flaw in the way MySQL evaluated the arguments of extreme-value functions,
such as LEAST and GREATEST, could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to
crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3833)

A flaw in the way MySQL handled LOAD DATA INFILE requests allowed MySQL to
send OK packets even when there were errors. (CVE-2010-3683)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed EXPLAIN statements for some complex
SELECT queries could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to crash
mysqld. (CVE-2010-3682)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed certain alternating READ requests
provided by HANDLER statements could allow a remote, authenticated attacker
to crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3681)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE statements that
define NULL columns when using the InnoDB storage engine, could allow a
remote, authenticated attacker to crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3680)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed certain values provided to the BINLOG
statement caused MySQL to read unassigned memory. A remote, authenticated
attacker could possibly use this flaw to crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3679)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed SQL queries containing IN or CASE
statements, when a NULL argument was provided as one of the arguments to
the query, could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to crash mysqld.
(CVE-2010-3678)

A flaw in the way MySQL processed JOIN queries that attempt to retrieve
data from a unique SET column could allow a remote, authenticated attacker
to crash mysqld. (CVE-2010-3677)

Note: CVE-2010-3840, CVE-2010-3838, CVE-2010-3837, CVE-2010-3835,
CVE-2010-3833, CVE-2010-3682, CVE-2010-3681, CVE-2010-3680, CVE-2010-3678,
and CVE-2010-3677 only cause a temporary denial of service, as mysqld was
automatically restarted after each crash.

These updated packages upgrade MySQL to version 5.1.52. Refer to the MySQL
release notes for a full list of changes:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-52.html

All MySQL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct
these issues. After installing this update, the MySQL server daemon
(mysqld) will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259
