Synopsis:          Updated MySQL packages fix vulnerability
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2003:282-01
Issue date:        2003-10-09
Updated on:        2003-10-09

CVE Names:         CAN-2003-0780
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

Updated MySQL server packages fix a buffer overflow vulnerability.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server.

Frank Denis reported a bug in unpatched versions of MySQL prior to version
3.23.58. Passwords for MySQL users are stored in the Password field of the
user table. Under this bug, a Password field with a value greater than 16
characters can cause a buffer overflow. It may be possible for an attacker
with the ability to modify the user table to exploit this buffer overflow
to execute arbitrary code as the MySQL user. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0780 to
this issue.

Users of MySQL are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages containing
MySQL 3.23.58, which is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

Please note that this update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red
Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
