    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL
    database server.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    
    CVE-2010-3677
    
      It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause
      a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) via a join query that uses a
      table with a unique SET column.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3680
    
      It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause
      a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by creating temporary tables
      while using InnoDB, which triggers an assertion failure.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3681
    
      It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause
      a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by using the HANDLER interface
      and performing "alternate reads from two indexes on a table," which
      triggers an assertion failure.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3682
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled use of EXPLAIN with
      certain queries.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3833
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled propagation during
      evaluation of arguments to extreme-value functions.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3834
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled materializing a derived
      table that required a temporary table for grouping.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3835
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain user-variable
      assignment expressions that are evaluated in a logical expression context.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3836
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled pre-evaluation of LIKE
      predicates during view preparation.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3837
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled using GROUP_CONCAT()
      and WITH ROLLUP together.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3838
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain queries using a
      mixed list of numeric and LONGBLOB arguments to the GREATEST() or
      LEAST() functions.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    CVE-2010-3840
    
      It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled improper WKB data
      passed to the PolyFromWKB() function.
      An authenticated user could crash the server.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed
    in version 5.0.51a-24+lenny5
    
    The testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution do not contain
    mysql-dfsg-5.0 anymore.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-dfsg-5.0 packages.
