Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL database server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2010-3677 It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) via a join query that uses a table with a unique SET column.

- CVE-2010-3680 It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by creating temporary tables while using InnoDB, which triggers an assertion failure.

- CVE-2010-3681 It was discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld daemon crash) by using the HANDLER interface and performing 'alternate reads from two indexes on a table,' which triggers an assertion failure.

- CVE-2010-3682 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled use of EXPLAIN with certain queries. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3833 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled propagation during evaluation of arguments to extreme-value functions. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3834 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled materializing a derived table that required a temporary table for grouping. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3835 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain user-variable assignment expressions that are evaluated in a logical expression context. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3836 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled pre-evaluation of LIKE predicates during view preparation. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3837 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled using GROUP_CONCAT() and WITH ROLLUP together. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3838 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled certain queries using a mixed list of numeric and LONGBLOB arguments to the GREATEST() or LEAST() functions. An authenticated user could crash the server.

- CVE-2010-3840 It was discovered that MySQL incorrectly handled improper WKB data passed to the PolyFromWKB() function.
An authenticated user could crash the server.

Solution

Upgrade the mysql-dfsg-5.0 packages.
