Scientific Linux Security Update : mariadb on SL7.x x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 90345

Synopsis

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

Description

Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that the MariaDB client library did not properly check host names against server identities noted in the X.509 certificates when establishing secure connections using TLS/SSL. A man-in-the-middle attacker could possibly use this flaw to impersonate a server to a client. (CVE-2016-2047)

(CVE-2015-4792, CVE-2015-4802, CVE-2015-4815, CVE-2015-4816, CVE-2015-4819, CVE-2015-4826, CVE-2015-4830, CVE-2015-4836, CVE-2015-4858, CVE-2015-4861, CVE-2015-4870, CVE-2015-4879, CVE-2015-4913, CVE-2016-0505, CVE-2016-0546, CVE-2016-0596, CVE-2016-0597, CVE-2016-0598, CVE-2016-0600, CVE-2016-0606, CVE-2016-0608, CVE-2016-0609, CVE-2016-0616)

Bug Fix(es) :

- When more than one INSERT operation was executed concurrently on a non- empty InnoDB table with an AUTO_INCREMENT column defined as a primary key immediately after starting MariaDB, a race condition could occur. As a consequence, one of the concurrent INSERT operations failed with a 'Duplicate key' error message. A patch has been applied to prevent the race condition. Now, each row inserted as a result of the concurrent INSERT operations receives a unique primary key, and the operations no longer fail in this scenario.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
