Description

Updated mysql packages that fix various security issues, as well as a number of bugs, are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server.

A number security issues that affect the mysql server have been reported :

Oleksandr Byelkin discovered that 'ALTER TABLE ... RENAME' checked the CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table instead of the new one. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0835 to this issue.

Lukasz Wojtow discovered a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect function. In order to exploit this issue an attacker would need to force the use of a malicious DNS server (CVE-2004-0836).

Dean Ellis discovered that multiple threads ALTERing the same (or different) MERGE tables to change the UNION could cause the server to crash or stall (CVE-2004-0837).

Sergei Golubchik discovered that if a user is granted privileges to a database with a name containing an underscore ('_'), the user also gains the ability to grant privileges to other databases with similar names (CVE-2004-0957).

Additionally, the following minor temporary file vulnerabilities were discovered :

  • Stan Bubroski and Shaun Colley found a temporary file vulnerability in the mysqlbug script (CVE-2004-0381). - A temporary file vulnerability was discovered in mysqld_multi (CVE-2004-0388). - Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered an temporary file vulnerability in the mysqlhotcopy script when using the scp method (CVE-2004-0457).

All users of mysql should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues and also include fixes for a number of small bugs.
