The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability was found in MySQL's authentication protocol, making
it possible for a remote unauthenticated attacker to send a specially
crafted authentication request to the MySQL server causing it to crash
Another flaw was discovered in MySQL that allowed remote authenticated
users to gain update privileges for a table in another database via a
view that refers to the external table (CVE-2007-3782).
Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
Update the affected packages.
