Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in MySQL, some of which may
allow execution of arbitrary code.


Background

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


Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/mysql
Vulnerable: < 5.1.56
Unaffected: >= 5.1.56
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

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


Impact

An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the MySQL process, cause a Denial of Service
condition, bypass security restrictions, uninstall arbitrary MySQL
plugins, or conduct Man-in-the-Middle and Cross-Site Scripting attacks.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mysql-5.1.56"
   
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since May 14, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no
longer affected by this issue.
