The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for perl-DBD-mysql fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2017-10789: The DBD::mysql module when with mysql_ssl=1 setting enabled, means that SSL is optional (even though this setting's documentation has a \'your communication with the server will be encrypted\' statement), which could lead man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers via a cleartext-downgrade attack, a related issue to CVE-2015-3152. (bsc#1047059)

- CVE-2017-10788: The DBD::mysql module through 4.043 for Perl allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering (1) certain error responses from a MySQL server or (2) a loss of a network connection to a MySQL server. The use-after-free defect was introduced by relying on incorrect Oracle mysql_stmt_close documentation and code examples. (bsc#1047095)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.


Update the affected perl-DBD-mysql packages.
