Mandrake A security problem exists in all versions of MySQL after 3.23.2 and prior to 3.23.31. The problem is that the SHOW GRANTS command could be executed by any user.

________________________________________________________________________

                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           MySQL
Date:                   January 26th, 2001
Original Advisory Date: January 22nd, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:014-1

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A security problem exists in all versions of MySQL after 3.23.2 and
 prior to 3.23.31.  The problem is that the SHOW GRANTS command could
 be executed by any user making it possible for anyone with a MySQL
 account to get the crypted password from the mysql.user table.  The new
 3.23.31 version fixes this.

 Due to library changes, the previously announced PHP update
 (MDKSA-2001:013) has been updated as well so that the php-mysql module
 supports this new version of MySQL.  It also corrects the upgrade
 scripts in the package, however you will still need to verify that PHP
 support is enabled in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf Apache 
 configuration file and verify that the installed modules are 
 uncommented in your /etc/php.ini file.

Update:

 Previous versions of MySQL also suffered from a buffer overflow problem
 that has been corrected in the recent releases.  This update fixes the
 buffer overflow problem in the MySQL packages provided with Linux-
 Mandrake 7.1 and Corporate Server 1.0.1.
________________________________________________________________________

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team at
   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.  

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.  

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.  
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Linux-Mandrake 7.2, look for it in "updates/7.2/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update.
