For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es) :

* Previously, the mysqladmin tool waited for an inadequate length of time if the socket it listened on did not respond in a specific way.
Consequently, when the socket was used while the MariaDB server was starting, the mariadb service became unresponsive for a long time.
With this update, the mysqladmin timeout has been shortened to 2 seconds. As a result, the mariadb service either starts or fails but no longer hangs in the described situation. (BZ#1584023)

Solution

Update the affected mariadb packages.
