                        TurboLinux Security Announcement

        Package: MySQL-3.22.27-5 and earlier
        Date:   Thu Mar  9 13:48:52 PST 2000

        Affected TurboLinux versions: 6.0.2 and earlier
        Vulnerability Type:  remote, possible MySQL DoS
        TurboLinux Advisory ID#:  TLSA200006-1
        BugTraq ID#: 975
        Credits:  This vulnerability was posted to the Bugtraq mailing list on
        February 8, 2000 by Robert van der Meulen <rvdm () cistron nl>.
______________________________________________________________________________

A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update the package in your installation as soon as possible or disable the service.
_____________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Summary

   The MySQL database server (prior to 3.22.32) has a flawed password
   authentication mechanism.  Anyone who can connect to the server can
   access databases without knowing an exact password.  When a check string
   of length one is passed to the server, only one character is compared.
   There are only 32 possibilities for the first character of the server-side
   check string.

2. Impact

   An attacker will have all of the access rights of the database user and
   may be able to read, add, or modify records.  From Robert's original post:
   "This vulnerability also incorporates a MySQL DoS attack, as the attacker
   can shutdown database servers and delete data, if she logs in with the
   MySQL management account."

3. Solution

  Update the package from our ftp server by running the following command:

  rpm -Fv ftp_path_to_filename

  Where ftp_path_to_filename is the following:

  ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/MySQL-3.22.32-1.i386.rpm

  The source rpm can be downloaded here:

  ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/MySQL-3.22.32-1.src.rpm

  **Note: You must rebuild and install the rpm if you choose to download
  and install the srpm.  Simply installing the srpm alone WILL NOT CLOSE
  THE SECURITY HOLE.

  Please verify the md5 checksum of the update before you install:

  MD5 sum                               Package Name
