Package        : mysql
Vulnerability  : remote buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

Nicolas Gregoire has reported a buffer overflow in the mysql server
that leads to a remote exploit.  An attacker could gain mysqld
privileges (and thus gaining access to all the databases).

We recommend you upgrade your mysql package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
