    Package        : mysql
    Problem type   : multiple problems
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE references : CAN-2002-1373, CAN-2002-1374, CAN-2002-1375, CAN-2002-1376
    
    While performing an audit of MySQL e-matters found several problems:
    
    * signed/unsigned problem in COM_TABLE_DUMP
      Two sizes were taken as signed integers from a request and then cast
      to unsigned integers without checking for negative numbers. Since the
      resulting numbers where used for a memcpy() operation this could lead
      to memory corruption.
    
    * Password length handling in COM_CHANGE_USER
      When re-authenticating to a different user MySQL did not perform
      all checks that are performed on initial authentication. This created
      two problems:
      * it allowed for single-character password brute forcing (as was fixed in
        February 2000 for initial login) which could be used by a normal user to
        gain root privileges to the database
      * it was possible to overflow the password buffer and force the server
        to execute arbitrary code
    
    * read_rows() overflow in libmysqlclient
      When processing the rows returned by a SQL server there was no check
      for overly large rows or terminating NUL characters. This can be used
      to exploit SQL clients if they connect to a compromised MySQL server.
    
    * read_one_row() overflow in libmysqlclient
      When processing a row as returned by a SQL server the returned field
      sizes were not verified. This can be used to exploit SQL clients if they
      connect to a compromised MySQL server.
    
    For Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/woody this has been fixed in version 3.23.49-8.2
    and version 3.22.32-6.3 for Debian GNU/Linux 2.2/potato.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages as soon as possible.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Obtaining updates:
    
      By hand:
        wget URL
            will fetch the file for you.
        dpkg -i FILENAME.deb
            will install the fetched file.
    
      With apt:
        deb  http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
            added to /etc/apt/sources.list will provide security updates
