SUSE SLED11 / SLES11 Security Update : mysql (SUSE-SU-2015:1788-1) (BACKRONYM)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 86537

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

MySQL was updated to version 5.5.45, fixing bugs and security issues.

A list of all changes can be found on :

- http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-45.html

- http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-44.html

To fix the 'BACKRONYM' security issue (CVE-2015-3152) the behaviour of the SSL options was changed slightly to meet expectations: Now using '--ssl-verify-server-cert' and '--ssl[-*]' implies that the ssl connection is required. The mysql client will now print an error if ssl is required, but the server can not handle a ssl connection [bnc#924663], [bnc#928962], [CVE-2015-3152]

Additional bugs fixed :

- fix rc.mysql-multi script to start instances after restart properly [bnc#934401].

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.
