Synopsis
========

MySQL is vulnerable to an SQL Injection flaw in the multi-byte encoding
process.

Background
==========

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

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package       /  Vulnerable  /                         Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-db/mysql      < 4.1.20                             *>= 4.1.20
                                                             >= 5.0.22
     dev-db/mysql      < 5.0.22                             *>= 4.1.20
                                                             >= 5.0.22

Description
===========

MySQL is vulnerable to an injection flaw in mysql_real_escape() when
used with multi-byte characters.

Impact
======

Due to a flaw in the multi-byte character process, an attacker is still
able to inject arbitary SQL statements into the MySQL server for
execution.

Workaround
==========

There are a few workarounds available: NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES mode as a
workaround for a bug in mysql_real_escape_string(): SET
sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'; SET GLOBAL
sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'; and server command line options:
--sql-mode=NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES.

Resolution
==========

All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mysql-4.1.20"

References
==========
