Summary
======
Multiple vulnerabilities have been fixed in MySQL.


Description
==========
1) An error within the handling of DDL statements after having  changed
the  "innodb_file_per_table" or   "innodb_file_format"   configuration
parameters can be exploited to crash the server.



2) An error when handling joins involving a unique "SET" column can  be
exploited to crash the server.



3) An error when handling NULL arguments passed  to  "IN()"  or  "CASE"
operations can be exploited to crash the server.



4) An error when processing certain malformed arguments passed  to  the
"BINLOG" statement can be exploited to crash the server.



5) An error when processing "TEMPORARY" InnoDB tables featuring nullable
columns can be exploited to crash the server.



6) An error when performing alternating reads from two indexes on tables
using the "HANDLER" interface can be exploited to crash the server.



7) An error when handling "EXPLAIN" statements on certain queries can be
exploited to crash the server.



8) An error when handling "LOAD DATA INFILE" statements can lead to the
return of an "OK" packet although errors have been encountered.



Affected packages:
