    1. Topic:

    Updated mysql packages that fix various security issues are now
    available.

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

    2. Relevant releases/architectures:

    Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
    Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
    Fedora Core 1 - i386

    3. Problem description:

    This update fixes a number of potential security problems associated
    with careless handling of temporary files. The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names
    CAN-2004-0381, CAN-2004-0388, CAN-2004-0457, and CAN-2005-0004 to these
    issues.

    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 CAN-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 (CAN-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 (CAN-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
    (CAN-2004-0957).

    All users of mysql should upgrade to these updated packages, which
    resolve these issues.

    4. Solution:

    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.

    To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

    rpm -Fvh [filenames]

    where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
    RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
    are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
    that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
    contains the desired RPMs.

    Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
    people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

    yum update

    or to use apt:

    apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

    This will start an interactive process that will result in the
    appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
    have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
    Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
    configure yum and apt-get.
