Package name:           MYSQL
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:013
Date:                   February 3rd, 2003

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0,

Problem Description:

 Aleksander Adamowski informed MandrakeSoft that the MySQL developers
 fixed a DoS vulnerability in the recently released 3.23.55 version 
 of MySQL.  A double free() pointer bug in the mysql_change_user() 
 handling would allow a specially hacked mysql client to crash the 
 main mysqld server.  This vulnerability can only be exploited by first
 logging in with a valid user account.
