CVE request: Debian's package "mysql-server" leaks credential information
From: vladz <vladz () devzero fr>
Date: Sat, 8 Jun 2013 12:44:45 +0200


The file "/etc/mysql/debian.cnf", which contains plain text credentials
for the "debian-sys-maint" mysql user, is created in an insecure manner
during the package installation phase.  This can lead a non-privileged
local user to disclose its content and use this special account to
perform administration tasks.


Could you allocate CVE id for this issue?

Thank you,
