    Package        : mysql-dfsg
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2558
    BugTraq ID     : 14509
    A stack-based buffer overflow in the init_syms function of MySQL, a
    popular database, has been discovered that allows remote authenticated
    users who can create user-defined functions to execute arbitrary code
    via a long function_name field.  The ability to create user-defined
    functions is not typically granted to untrusted users.
    The following vulnerability matrix shows which version of MySQL in
    which distribution has this problem fixed:
                         woody              sarge              sid
    mysql             3.23.49-8.14           n/a               n/a
    mysql-dfsg            n/a          4.0.24-10sarge1    4.0.24-10sarge1
    mysql-dfsg-4.1        n/a          4.1.11a-4sarge2        4.1.14-2
    mysql-dfsg-5.0        n/a                n/a            5.0.11beta-3
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-dfsg packages.
