Description

It was found that the MySQL PolyFromWKB() function did not sanity check Well-Known Binary (WKB) data. A remote, authenticated attacker could use specially crafted WKB data to crash mysqld. This issue only caused a temporary denial of service, as mysqld was automatically restarted after the crash. (CVE-2010-3840)

A flaw was found in the way MySQL processed certain alternating READ requests provided by HANDLER statements. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to provide such requests, causing mysqld to crash. This issue only caused a temporary denial of service, as mysqld was automatically restarted after the crash. (CVE-2010-3681)

A directory traversal flaw was found in the way MySQL handled the parameters of the MySQL COM_FIELD_LIST network protocol command. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to obtain descriptions of the fields of an arbitrary table using a request with a specially crafted table name. (CVE-2010-1848)

After installing this update, the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) will be restarted automatically.
