Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2192-01
Posted Aug 2, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2192-01 - MariaDB is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server that is binary compatible with MySQL. The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: mariadb. Security Fix: It was discovered that the mysql and mysqldump tools did not correctly handle database and table names containing newline characters. A database user with privileges to create databases or tables could cause the mysql command to execute arbitrary shell or SQL commands while restoring database backup created using the mysqldump tool.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2749-01 - 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: rh-mysql56-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.
