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.

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the user permission
checking code in MySQL. An authenticated database user could use this flaw
to crash the mysqld daemon or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the mysqld daemon. (CVE-2012-5611)

All MySQL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct
this issue. 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
