Subject: Security ERRATA Important: mysql on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Wednesday 23rd January 2013 17:20:17 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Important: mysql security update
Issue Date:        2013-01-22
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-2749
                    CVE-2012-5611
                    CVE-2012-2122
--

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the user permission
checking
code in MySQL. An authenticated database user could use this flaw to 
crash the
mysqld daemon or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of
the user running the mysqld daemon. (CVE-2012-5611)

A flaw was found in the way MySQL calculated the key length when creating a
sort order index for certain queries. An authenticated database user 
could use
this flaw to crash the mysqld daemon. (CVE-2012-2749)

This update also adds a patch for a potential flaw in the MySQL password
checking function, which could allow an attacker to log into any MySQL 
account
without knowing the correct password. This problem (CVE-2012-2122) only
affected MySQL packages that use a certain compiler and C library 
optimization.
It did not affect the mysql packages in Scientific Linux 5. The patch is 
being
added as a preventive measure to ensure this problem cannot get exposed in
future revisions of the mysql packages.

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