1. Topic:

The MySQL database that shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 and the updates for it
have been reported by the MySQL authors to have security problems.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

The MySQL database that shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 and the updates for
it  have been reported by the MySQL authors to have security problems.

These problems (buffer overflow and information protection issues) have
been fixed in version 3.23.32, which also contains the earlier fixes.

Note that MySQL has updated its client library since the initial version
shipped with Red Hat Linux 7.  A new package, mysqlclient9, must be used
for running applications linked with the library.

4. Solution:

Because of dependencies, the packages must be installed as a group.

After downloading all RPMs needed for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Uvh mysql*

Note that in rare cases, the shutdown of the old database fails after
upgrade - to ensure a smooth upgrade, shut the database down before

service mysqld stop

5. Bug IDs fixed  (http://bugzilla.Red for more info):

24381 - Buffer Overflow in MySQL <3.23.31
22649 - encrypt() function not supported
24589 - mysql logrotate script returns an error, log doesn't get rotated

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.0:
