    Debian Bug     : 670636 677018
    
    Several issues have been discovered in the MySQL database server. The
    vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading MySQL to a new upstream
    version, 5.1.63, which includes additional changes, such as performance
    improvements and corrections for data loss defects.  These changes are
    described in the MySQL release notes at:
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-x.html
    
    CVE-2012-2122, an authentication bypass vulnerability, occurs only when
    MySQL has been built in with certain optimisations enabled. The packages
    in Debian stable (squeeze) are not known to be affected by this
    vulnerability. It is addressed in this update nonetheless, so future
    rebuilds will not become vulnerable to this issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.1.63-0+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems has been fixed
    in version 5.1.62-1 of the mysql-5.1 package and version 5.5.24+dfsg-1
    of the mysql-5.5 package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your MySQL packages.
