Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name: MySQL
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:057
Date: May 14th, 2003

Affected versions: 8.2, 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

In MySQL 3.23.55 and earlier, MySQL would create world-writeable files
and allow mysql users to gain root privileges by using the "SELECT *
INTO OUTFILE" operator to overwrite a configuration file, which could
cause mysql to run as root upon restarting the daemon.

This has been fixed upstream in version 3.23.56, which is provided for
Mandrake Linux 9.0 and Corporate Server 2.1 users. The other updated
packages have been patched to correct this issue.
