Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in MySQL, a popular SQL
database.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies
the following problems:


    Improper handling of SQL queries containing the NULL character
    allow local users to bypass logging mechanisms.


    Usernames without a trailing null byte allow remote attackers to
    read portions of memory.


    A request with an incorrect packet length allows remote attackers
    to obtain sensitive information.


    Specially crafted request packets with invalid length values allow
    the execution of arbitrary code.

The following vulnerability matrix shows which version of MySQL in
which distribution has this problem fixed:

                   woody            sarge            sid
mysql            3.23.49-8.15        n/a             n/a
mysql-dfsg          n/a         4.0.24-10sarge2      n/a
mysql-dfsg-4.1      n/a         4.1.11a-4sarge3      n/a
mysql-dfsg-5.0      n/a              n/a           5.0.21-3

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.
