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

checking code in MySQL. An authenticated database user could use this flaw
to crash the mysqld daemon or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the mysqld daemon. (CVE-2012-5611)

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