    Package        : mysql
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0957
    BugTraq ID     : 12781
    Debian Bug     : 285276 296674 300158
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in MySQL, a popular
    database.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
        Sergei Golubchik discovered a problem in the access handling for
        similar named databases.  If a user is granted privileges to a
        database with a name containing an underscore ("_"), the user also
        gains privileges to other databases with similar names.
        Stefano Di Paola discovered that MySQL allows remote
        authenticated users with INSERT and DELETE privileges to execute
        arbitrary code by using CREATE FUNCTION to access libc calls.
        Stefano Di Paola discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated
        users with INSERT and DELETE privileges to bypass library path
        restrictions and execute arbitrary libraries by using INSERT INTO
        to modify the mysql.func table.
       Stefano Di Paola discovered that MySQL uses predictable file names
       when creating temporary tables, which allows local users with
       CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE privileges to overwrite arbitrary files via
       a symlink attack.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.23.49-8.11.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.24-5 of mysql-dfsg and in version 4.1.10a-6 of
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
