               Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated mysql packages fix security issues
Advisory ID:       FLSA:167803
Issue date:        2006-01-10
Product:           Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords:          Bugfix
CVE Names:         CVE-2005-2558
---------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated mysql packages that fix a security issue are now available.

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

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

Reid Borsuk discovered a buffer overflow in the MySQL init_syms()
function. A user with the ability to create and execute a user
defined function could potentially execute arbitrary code on the MySQL
server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2005-2558 to this issue.

This release fixes two additional problems. A regression was introduced
in a patch included in the previous MySQL packages that resulted in
queries performing a DELETE without a WHERE failing on ISAM tables.
Also, the MySQL init script was improved to allow the MySQL service to
restart properly during upgrades.

All users of the MySQL server are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain fixes for these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.  This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.
