mysql-dfsg vulnerability

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4.0.20-2ubuntu1.6 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 4.0.23-3ubuntu2.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

AppSecInc Team SHATTER discovered a buffer overflow in the "CREATE
FUNCTION" statement. By specifying a specially crafted long function
name, a local or remote attacker with function creation privileges
could crash the server or execute arbitrary code with server

However, the right to create function is usually not granted to
untrusted users.
