Debian DSA-2429-1 : mysql-5.1 - several vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58277

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Due to the non-disclosure of security patch information from Oracle, we are forced to ship an upstream version update of MySQL 5.1. There are several known incompatible changes, which are listed in /usr/share/doc/mysql-server/NEWS.Debian.gz.

Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in MySQL, a database management system. The vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading MySQL to a new upstream version, 5.1.61, which includes additional changes, such as performance improvements and corrections for data loss defects. These changes are described in the MySQL release notes at: .

Solution

Upgrade the mysql-5.1 packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 5.1.61-0+squeeze1.
