 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:008

 Package : mysql
 Date    : February 6, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilites has been found and corrected in mysql:
 sql/password.c in Oracle MySQL 5.1.x before 5.1.63, 5.5.x before
 5.5.24, and 5.6.x before 5.6.6, and MariaDB 5.1.x before 5.1.62,
 5.2.x before 5.2.12, 5.3.x before 5.3.6, and 5.5.x before 5.5.23,
 when running in certain environments with certain implementations of
 the memcmp function, allows remote attackers to bypass authentication
 by repeatedly authenticating with the same incorrect password,
 which eventually causes a token comparison to succeed due to an
 improperly-checked return value (CVE-2012-2122).
 MySQL 5.1.x before 5.1.63 and 5.5.x before 5.5.24 allows remote
 authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld crash)
 via vectors related to incorrect calculation and a sort order index
 Stack-based buffer overflow in Oracle MySQL 5.5.19 and other versions
 through 5.5.28, and 5.1.53 and other versions through 5.1.66, and
 MariaDB 5.5.2.x before 5.5.28a, 5.3.x before 5.3.11, 5.2.x before
 5.2.13 and 5.1.x before 5.1.66, allows remote authenticated users to
 execute arbitrary code via a long argument to the GRANT FILE command
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
