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

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL database server. It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) via a join query that uses a table with a unique SET column, by creating temporary tables while using InnoDB, or by using the HANDLER interface and performing “alternate reads from two indexes on a table”. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled use of EXPLAIN with certain queries. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled propagation during evaluation of arguments to extreme-value functions. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled materializing a derived table that required a temporary table for grouping. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain user-variable assignment expressions that are evaluated in a logical expression context. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled pre-evaluation of LIKE predicates during view preparation. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled using GROUP_CONCAT() and WITH ROLLUP together. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain queries using a mixed list of numeric and LONGBLOB arguments to the GREATEST() or LEAST() functions. It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled improper WKB data passed to the PolyFromWKB() function. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

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


CVE-2010-3677

 It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause
 a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) via a join query that uses a
 table with a unique SET column.


CVE-2010-3680

 It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause
 a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by creating temporary tables
 while using InnoDB, which triggers an assertion failure.


CVE-2010-3681

 It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause
 a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by using the HANDLER interface
 and performing "alternate reads from two indexes on a table," which
 triggers an assertion failure.


CVE-2010-3682

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled use of EXPLAIN with
 certain queries.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3833

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled propagation during
 evaluation of arguments to extreme-value functions.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3834

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled materializing a derived
 table that required a temporary table for grouping.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3835

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain user-variable
 assignment expressions that are evaluated in a logical expression context.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3836

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled pre-evaluation of LIKE
 predicates during view preparation.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3837

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled using GROUP_CONCAT()
 and WITH ROLLUP together.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3838

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain queries using a
 mixed list of numeric and LONGBLOB arguments to the GREATEST() or
 LEAST() functions.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


CVE-2010-3840

 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled improper WKB data
 passed to the PolyFromWKB() function.
 An authenticated user could crash the server.


For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed
in version 5.0.51a-24+lenny5

The testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution do not contain
mysql-dfsg-5.0 anymore.

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