Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.71402
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:0874
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:0874.

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

A flaw was found in the way MySQL processed HANDLER READ NEXT statements
after deleting a record. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this
flaw to provide such requests, causing mysqld to crash. This issue only
caused a temporary denial of service, as mysqld was automatically restarted
after the crash. (CVE-2012-2102)

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* The InnoDB storage engine is built-in for all architectures. This update
adds InnoDB Plugin, the InnoDB storage engine as a plug-in for the 32-bit
x86, AMD64, and Intel 64 architectures. The plug-in offers additional
features and better performance than when using the built-in InnoDB storage
engine. Refer to the MySQL documentation, linked to in the References
section, for information about enabling the plug-in. (BZ#740224)

All MySQL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which add this
enhancement and contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After
installing this update, the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) will be restarted
automatically.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
