Description

The MySQL database that shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 and the updates for it have been reported by the MySQL authors to have security problems.

The MySQL database that shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 and the updates for it have been reported by the MySQL authors to have security problems. These problems (buffer overflow and information protection issues) have been fixed in version 3.23.32, which also contains the earlier fixes. Note that MySQL has updated its client library since the initial version shipped with Red Hat Linux 7. A new package, mysqlclient9, must be used for running applications linked with the libmysqlclient.so.9 library.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-mysql
  • redhat-upgrade-mysql-devel
  • redhat-upgrade-mysql-server
  • redhat-upgrade-mysqlclient9
