  EnGarde Secure Linux is an enterprise class Linux platform engineered
  to enable corporations to quickly and cost-effectively build a complete
  and secure Internet presence while preventing Internet threats.

  The MySQL daemon contains a buffer overflow which may be exploited by
  any user who has ALTER TABLE permissions on the "mysql" database.  Once
  exploited, the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code as the
  user under which the MySQL daemon is being run ("mysql" on a default
  EnGarde installation).

  assigned the name CAN-2003-0780 to this issue.
