Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2010:155-1

Package : mysql
Date : November 8, 2010
Affected: 2009.1

Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in mysql:

MySQL before 5.1.48 allows remote authenticated users with alter
database privileges to cause a denial of service (server crash
and database loss) via an ALTER DATABASE command with a #mysql50#
string followed by a . (dot), .. (dot dot), ../ (dot dot slash) or
similar sequence, and an UPGRADE DATA DIRECTORY NAME command, which
causes MySQL to move certain directories to the server data directory

Additionally many security issues noted in the 5.1.49 release notes
has been addressed with this advisory as well, such as:

* LOAD DATA INFILE did not check for SQL errors and sent an OK packet
even when errors were already reported. Also, an assert related to
client-server protocol checking in debug servers sometimes was raised
when it should not have been. (Bug#52512) (CVE-2010-3683)

* Using EXPLAIN with queries of the form SELECT ... UNION ... ORDER
BY (SELECT ... WHERE ...) could cause a server crash. (Bug#52711)

* The server could crash if there were alternate reads from two indexes
on a table using the HANDLER interface. (Bug#54007) (CVE-2010-3681)

* A malformed argument to the BINLOG statement could result in Valgrind
warnings or a server crash. (Bug#54393) (CVE-2010-3679)

* Incorrect handling of NULL arguments could lead to a crash for IN()
or CASE operations when NULL arguments were either passed explicitly
as arguments (for IN()) or implicitly generated by the WITH ROLLUP
modifier (for IN() and CASE). (Bug#54477) (CVE-2010-3678)

* Joins involving a table with with a unique SET column could cause
a server crash. (Bug#54575) (CVE-2010-3677)

* Use of TEMPORARY InnoDB tables with nullable columns could cause
a server crash. (Bug#54044) (CVE-2010-3680)

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
