Slackware New mariadb and mysql packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  mariadb, mysql (SSA:2014-050-02)

New mariadb and mysql packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mariadb-5.5.35-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a buffer overflow in the mysql command line client which
  may allow malicious or compromised database servers to cause a denial of
  service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long server
  version string.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0001
  (* Security fix *)
