Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in MySQL, some of which may allow
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

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

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-db/mysql                 < 5.1.56                  >= 5.1.56

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in MySQL. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the MySQL process, cause a Denial of
Service condition, bypass security restrictions, uninstall arbitrary
MySQL plugins, or conduct Man-in-the-Middle and Cross-Site Scripting
attacks.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mysql-5.1.56"

NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since May 14, 2011. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
