Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2018:1463-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1047059 #1047095
Cross-References: CVE-2017-10788 CVE-2017-10789
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

This update for perl-DBD-mysql fixes the following issues:

- CVE-2017-10789: The DBD::mysql module when with mysql_ssl=1 setting
enabled, means that SSL is optional (even though this setting's
documentation has a \"your communication with the server will be
encrypted\" statement), which could lead man-in-the-middle attackers to
spoof servers via a cleartext-downgrade attack, a related issue to
CVE-2015-3152. (bsc#1047059)
- CVE-2017-10788: The DBD::mysql module through 4.043 for Perl allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and
application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
triggering (1) certain error responses from a MySQL server or (2) a loss
of a network connection to a MySQL server. The use-after-free defect was
introduced by relying on incorrect Oracle mysql_stmt_close documentation
and code examples. (bsc#1047095)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
