                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           MySQL
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:094
Date:                   September 18th, 2003

Affected versions:      8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow was discovered in MySQL that could be executed by any
 user with "ALTER TABLE" privileges on the "mysql" database.  If
 successfully exploited, the attacker could execute arbitrary code with
 the privileges of the user running the mysqld process (mysqld).  The
 "mysql" database is used by MySQL for internal record keeping and by
 default only the "root" user, or MySQL administrative account, has
 permission to alter its tables.
 
 This vulnerability was corrected in MySQL 4.0.15 and all previous
 versions are vulnerable.  These packages have been patched to correct
 the problem.
