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 (bsc#1112368)

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.
