Description

Important: mysql security updateMySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. MySQL is aclient/server implementation consisting of a server daemon (mysqld), andmany different client programs and libraries.A flaw was found in a way MySQL handled symbolic links when database tableswere created with explicit "DATA" and "INDEX DIRECTORY" options. Anauthenticated user could create a table that would overwrite tables inother databases, causing destruction of data or allowing the user toelevate privileges. (CVE-2007-5969)A flaw was found in a way MySQL's InnoDB engine handled spatial indexes. Anauthenticated user could create a table with spatial indexes, which are notsupported by the InnoDB engine, that would cause the mysql daemon to crashwhen used. This issue only causes a temporary denial of service, as themysql daemon will be automatically restarted after the crash.(CVE-2007-5925)All mysql users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, whichcontain backported patches to resolve these issues.
