Following security issues were fixed :

CVE-2016-9843: The crc32_big function in zlib might have allowed
context-dependent attackers to have unspecified impact via vectors
involving big-endian CRC calculation. (bsc#1013882) Please note that
SUSE uses the system zlib, not the embedded copy.

CVE-2018-3133: Authenticated low privilege attackers could cause
denial of service attacks (hangs or crashes) against the mysql server
(bsc#1112369)

CVE-2018-3174: Authenticated high privilege attackers could cause
denial of service attacks (hangs or crashes) against the mysql server

denial of service attacks (hangs or crashes) against the mysql server
(bsc#1112432)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
