openSUSE 10 Security Update : libmysqlclient-devel (libmysqlclient-devel-5341)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 33885
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe database server MySQL was updated to fix a security problem :
CVE-2008-2079: MySQL allowed local users to bypass certain privilege checks by calling CREATE TABLE on a MyISAM table with modified (1) DATA DIRECTORY or (2) INDEX DIRECTORY arguments that are within the MySQL home data directory, which can point to tables that are created in the future.
CVE-2006-7232: sql_select.cc in MySQL 5.0.x before 5.0.32 and 5.1.x before 5.1.14 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (crash) via an EXPLAIN SELECT FROM on the INFORMATION_SCHEMA table, as originally demonstrated using ORDER BY.
SolutionUpdate the affected libmysqlclient-devel packages.
