Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2010-117 
      Date: 2010-08-24
  Severity: 3
      Type: Remote

A security issue has been fixed in MySQL, which  can  be  exploited  by
malicious users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).


MySQL  before 5.1.48  allows  remote  authenticated  users  with  alter
database privileges to cause a denial  of  service  (server  crash  and
database loss) via an ALTER DATABASE command with  a  #mysql50#  string
followed by a . (dot), .. (dot dot), ../ (dot  dot  slash)  or  similar
sequence, and an UPGRADE DATA DIRECTORY NAME command, which causes MySQL
to move certain directories to the server data directory.

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    mysql-server, all before 5.1.48-49-12

There are update(s) for mysql-server. You can update them  via  Package
Manager or with a single command from console:

    pisi up mysql-server
