Description

A stack-based buffer overflow in the init_syms function of MySQL, a popular database, has been discovered that allows remote authenticated users who can create user-defined functions to execute arbitrary code via a long function_name field. The ability to create user-defined functions is not typically granted to untrusted users.

The following vulnerability matrix shows which version of MySQL in which distribution has this problem fixed :

               woody            sarge            sid                mysql            3.23.49-8.14     n/a              n/a                mysql-dfsg       n/a              4.0.24-10sarge1  4.0.24-10sarge1    mysql-dfsg-4.1   n/a              4.1.11a-4sarge2  4.1.14-2           mysql-dfsg-5.0   n/a              n/a              5.0.11beta-3
