This update for mariadb and mariadb-connector-c fixes the following issues :

mariadb :

Update to version 10.2.25 (bsc#1136035)

CVE-2019-2628: Fixed a remote denial of service by an privileged attacker (bsc#1136035).

CVE-2019-2627: Fixed another remote denial of service by an privileged attacker (bsc#1136035).

CVE-2019-2614: Fixed a potential remote denial of service by an privileged attacker (bsc#1136035).

Fixed reading options for multiple instances if my${INSTANCE}.cnf is used (bsc#1132666).

Adjust mysql-systemd-helper ('shutdown protected MySQL' section) so it checks both ping response and the pid in a process list as it can take some time till the process is terminated. Otherwise it can lead to 'found left-over process' situation when regular mariadb is started (bsc#1143215).

mariadb-connector-c: Update to version 3.1.2 (bsc#1136035)

Moved libmariadb.pc from /usr/lib/pkgconfig to /usr/lib64/pkgconfig for x86_64 (bsc#1126088)

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.
