Debian: New mysql-dfsg-5.0 packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL database server. It was discovered that privilege validation for the source table of CREATE TABLE LIKE statements was insufficiently enforced, which might lead to information disclosure. This is only exploitable by authenticated users. It was discovered that symbolic links were handled insecurely during the creation of tables with DATA DIRECTORY or INDEX DIRECTORY statements, which might lead to denial of service by overwriting data. This is only exploitable by authenticated users. It was discovered that queries to data in a FEDERATED table can lead to a crash of the local database server, if the remote server returns information with less columns than expected, resulting in denial of service. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-3781 CVE-2007-5969 CVE-2007-6304

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL
database server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-3781

   It was discovered that privilege validation for the source table
   of CREATE TABLE LIKE statements was insufficiently enforced, which
   might lead to information disclosure. This is only exploitable by
   authenticated users.

CVE-2007-5969

   It was discovered that symbolic links were handled insecurely during
   the creation of tables with DATA DIRECTORY or INDEX DIRECTORY
   statements, which might lead to denial of service by overwriting
   data. This is only exploitable by authenticated users.

CVE-2007-6304

   It was discovered that queries to data in a FEDERATED table can
   lead to a crash of the local database server, if the remote server
   returns information with less columns than expected, resulting in
   denial of service.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0.51-1.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0.32-7etch4.

The the old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain mysql-dfsg-5.0.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-dfsg-5.0 packages.
