|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'mysql'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'mysql'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
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 stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the user permission
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)
A flaw was found in the way MySQL calculated the key length when creating
a sort order index for certain queries. An authenticated database user
could use this flaw to crash the mysqld daemon. (CVE-2012-2749)
This update also adds a patch for a potential flaw in the MySQL password
checking function, which could allow an attacker to log into any MySQL
account without knowing the correct password. This problem (CVE-2012-2122)
only affected MySQL packages that use a certain compiler and C library
optimization. It did not affect the mysql packages in Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5. The patch is being added as a preventive measure to ensure this
problem cannot get exposed in future revisions of the mysql packages.
All MySQL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct
these issues. After installing this update, the MySQL server daemon
(mysqld) will be restarted automatically.
