Ubuntu Several security issues were fixed in MySQL.
==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2170-1
April 23, 2014

mysql-5.5 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 13.10
- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in MySQL.

Software Description:
- mysql-5.5: MySQL database

Details:

Multiple security issues were discovered in MySQL and this update includes
a new upstream MySQL version to fix these issues. MySQL has been updated to
5.5.37.

In addition to security fixes, the updated packages contain bug fixes,
new features, and possibly incompatible changes.

Please see the following for more information:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-36.html
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-37.html
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpuapr2014-1972952.html

Additionally, Matthias Reichl discovered that the mysql-5.5 packages were
missing the patches applied previously in the mysql-5.1 packages to drop
the default test database and localhost permissions granting access to any
databases starting with "test_". This update reintroduces these patches for
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 12.10, and Ubuntu 13.10. Existing test databases
and permissions will not be modified on upgrade. To manually restrict
access for existing installations, please refer to the following:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/default-privileges.html

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  mysql-server-5.5                5.5.37-0ubuntu0.14.04.1

Ubuntu 13.10:
  mysql-server-5.5                5.5.37-0ubuntu0.13.10.1

Ubuntu 12.10:
  mysql-server-5.5                5.5.37-0ubuntu0.12.10.1

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  mysql-server-5.5                5.5.37-0ubuntu0.12.04.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
