    Package        : mysql-ocaml
    Vulnerability  : missing escape function
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CVE-2009-2942
    
    
    It was discovered that mysql-ocaml, OCaml bindings for MySql, was
    missing a function to call mysql_real_escape_string(). This is needed,
    because mysql_real_escape_string() honours the charset of the connection
    and prevents insufficient escaping, when certain multibyte character
    encodings are used. The added function is called real_escape() and
    takes the established database connection as a first argument. The old
    escape_string() was kept for backwards compatibility.
    
    Developers using these bindings are encouraged to adjust their code to
    use the new function.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-4+lenny1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-2+etch1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-ocaml packages.
