Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in MySQL, worst of which
allows local attackers to escalate their privileges.

Background
==========

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

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-db/mysql < 5.5.39 >= 5.5.39

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

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

Impact
======

A local attacker could possibly gain escalated privileges. A remote
attacker could send a specially crafted SQL query, possibly resulting
in a Denial of Service condition. A remote attacker could entice a user
to connect to specially crafted MySQL server, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process.

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-5.5.39"
