CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : MySQL
SUMMARY   : Remote exploit
DATE      : 2001-01-25 15:38:00
ID        : CLA-2001:375
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 4.0, 4.0es, 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 MySQL is a very popular database.
 Versions older than 3.23.31 have a buffer overflow vulnerability that
 could be exploited remotely depending on how the database access is
 configured (via web, for example).


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all MySQL users update their packages
 immediately.
 Older versions of Conectiva Linux ran the mysqld daemon as root. This
 update changes that behaviour for these older versions so that the
 daemon now runs as the "mysql" user instead of root. CL6.0 already
 has this feature. Users upgrading older versions should check the
 /var/lib/mysql directory for permissions for the mysql user. Usually,
 a "chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql" should be enough.
 Also, programs using the dynamic library of MySQL should be
 recompiled after this update.
