Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0226 CVE-2008-0227

Luigi Auriemma discovered two buffer overflows in YaSSL, an SSL
implementation included in the MySQL database package, which could lead
to denial of service and possibly the execution of arbitrary code.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0.51-3.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0.32-7etch5.

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

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