Debian Security Advisory DSA 833-2                     security@debian.org

Package        : mysql-dfsg-4.1
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 explains 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

This update only covers binary packages for the big endian MIPS
architecture that was mysteriously forgotton in the earlier update.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-dfsg-4.1 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.

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
