Synopsis

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:0186 :

Updated mysql55-mysql packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. It consists of the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) and many client programs and libraries.

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the MySQL database server. Information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory page, listed in the References section.
(CVE-2013-5807, CVE-2013-5891, CVE-2014-0386, CVE-2014-0393, CVE-2014-0401, CVE-2014-0402, CVE-2014-0412, CVE-2014-0420, CVE-2014-0437, CVE-2013-3839, CVE-2013-5908)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the MySQL command line client tool (mysql) processed excessively long version strings. If a user connected to a malicious MySQL server via the mysql client, the server could use this flaw to crash the mysql client or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running the mysql client.
(CVE-2014-0001)

The CVE-2014-0001 issue was discovered by Garth Mollett of the Red Hat Security Response Team.

These updated packages upgrade MySQL to version 5.5.36. Refer to the MySQL Release Notes listed in the References section for a complete list of changes.

All MySQL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. After installing this update, the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) will be restarted automatically.

Solution

Update the affected mysql55-mysql packages.
