  Several vulnerabilities including privilege abuse, Denial of Service,
  and potentially remote arbitrary code execution have been discovered
  in the MySQL RDBMS [1].
  Lukasz Wojtow noticed a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect
  function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project
  assigned the ids CAN-2004-0836 [2] to this problem.

  Dean Ellis noticed that multiple threads ALTERing the same (or
  different) MERGE tables to change the UNION can cause the server to
  crash or stall. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project
  assigned the ids CAN-2004-0837 [3] to this problem.

  A crash can occur with "MATCH..AGAINST", resulting in a denial of
  service (MySQL bugs 3870 and 2708). A privilege escalation can occur
  with "GRANT" (MySQL bug 3933).

  Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/rpm -q
  mysql". If you have the "mysql" package installed and its version is
  affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade it
  (see Solution) and its dependent packages. [4][5]

  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
  [6], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [7] or a mirror location,
  verify its integrity [8], build a corresponding binary RPM from it
  [4] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the binary RPM
  [5]. For the previous release OpenPKG 2.1, perform the following
  operations to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases
  adjust accordingly).

  $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org
  ftp> bin
  ftp> cd release/2.1/UPD
  ftp> get mysql-4.0.20-2.1.1.src.rpm
  ftp> bye
  $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -v --checksig mysql-4.0.20-2.1.1.src.rpm
  $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild mysql-4.0.20-2.1.1.src.rpm
  $ su -
  # <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/mysql-4.0.20-2.1.1.*.rpm

  Additionally, it is recommend that you rebuild and reinstall
  all dependent packages (see above) as well [3][4].
