Scientific Linux Security Update : mariadb on SL7.x x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that the MariaDB client library did not
properly check host names against server identities
noted in the X.509 certificates when establishing secure
connections using TLS/SSL. A man-in-the-middle attacker
could possibly use this flaw to impersonate a server to
a client. (CVE-2016-2047)

Bug Fix(es) :

- When more than one INSERT operation was executed
concurrently on a non- empty InnoDB table with an
AUTO_INCREMENT column defined as a primary key
immediately after starting MariaDB, a race condition
could occur. As a consequence, one of the concurrent
INSERT operations failed with a 'Duplicate key' error
message. A patch has been applied to prevent the race
condition. Now, each row inserted as a result of the
concurrent INSERT operations receives a unique primary
key, and the operations no longer fail in this scenario.
