Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mysql (MDVSA-2010:222)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in mysql :

- Joins involving a table with with a unique SET column
could cause a server crash (CVE-2010-3677).

- Use of TEMPORARY InnoDB tables with nullable columns
could cause a server crash (CVE-2010-3680).

- The server could crash if there were alternate reads
from two indexes on a table using the HANDLER interface
(CVE-2010-3681).

- Using EXPLAIN with queries of the form SELECT ... UNION
... ORDER BY (SELECT ... WHERE ...) could cause a server
crash (CVE-2010-3682).

- During evaluation of arguments to extreme-value
functions (such as LEAST() and GREATEST()), type errors
did not propagate properly, causing the server to crash
(CVE-2010-3833).

- The server could crash after materializing a derived
table that required a temporary table for grouping
(CVE-2010-3834).

- A user-variable assignment expression that is evaluated
in a logical expression context can be precalculated in
a temporary table for GROUP BY. However, when the
expression value is used after creation of the temporary
table, it was re-evaluated, not read from the table and
a server crash resulted (CVE-2010-3835).

- Pre-evaluation of LIKE predicates during view
preparation could cause a server crash (CVE-2010-3836).

- GROUP_CONCAT() and WITH ROLLUP together could cause a
server crash (CVE-2010-3837).

- Queries could cause a server crash if the GREATEST() or
LEAST() function had a mixed list of numeric and
LONGBLOB arguments, and the result of such a function
was processed using an intermediate temporary table
(CVE-2010-3838).

- Queries with nested joins could cause an infinite loop
in the server when used from stored procedures and
prepared statements (CVE-2010-3839).

- The PolyFromWKB() function could crash the server when
improper WKB data was passed to the function
(CVE-2010-3840).

Additionally the default behaviour of using the mysqlmanager instead
of the mysqld_safe script has been reverted in the SysV init script
because of instability issues with the mysqlmanager.
