Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2130-01 - MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. It consists of the MySQL server daemon, mysqld, and many client programs. The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version: mysql55-mysql. Security Fix: It was discovered that the MySQL logging functionality allowed writing to MySQL configuration files. An administrative database user, or a database user with FILE privileges, could possibly use this flaw to run arbitrary commands with root privileges on the system running the database server.

3. Description:

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. It consists of
the MySQL server daemon, mysqld, and many client programs.

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
mysql55-mysql (5.5.52).

Security Fix(es):

* It was discovered that the MySQL logging functionality allowed writing to
MySQL configuration files. An administrative database user, or a database
user with FILE privileges, could possibly use this flaw to run arbitrary
commands with root privileges on the system running the database server.
(CVE-2016-6662)

* This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the MySQL database server.
Information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Critical Patch
Update Advisory page, listed in the References section. (CVE-2016-3492,
CVE-2016-5612, CVE-2016-5616, CVE-2016-5617, CVE-2016-5624, CVE-2016-5626,
CVE-2016-5629, CVE-2016-8283)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:
