| EnGarde Secure Linux Security Advisory               February 20, 2003 |

|                                                                        |
| Packages: MySQL, MySQL-client, MySQL-shared                            |
| Summary:  MySQL double free vulnerability.                             |
+------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  EnGarde Secure Linux is a secure distribution of Linux that features
  improved access control, host and network intrusion detection, Web
  based secure remote management, e-commerce, and integrated open source
  security tools.

OVERVIEW
- --------
  This update fixes a double free() bug in the MySQL daemon that could
  allow an attacker, with a specially crafted MySQL client, to crash the
  server.  The attacker also requires a valid user account.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has
  assigned the name CAN-2003-0073 to this issue.

  All users are recommended to upgrade as soon as soon as possible.

SOLUTION
- --------
  Users of the EnGarde Professional edition can use the Guardian Digital
  Secure Network to update their systems automatically.

  EnGarde Community users should upgrade to the most recent version
  as outlined in this advisory.  Updates may be obtained from:

    ftp://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/
    http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/

  Before upgrading the package, the machine must either:

    a) be booted into a "standard" kernel; or
    b) have LIDS disabled.

  To disable LIDS, execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL

  To install the updated package, execute the command:

    # rpm -Uvh files

  You must now update the LIDS configuration by executing the command:

    # /usr/sbin/config_lids.pl

  To re-enable LIDS (if it was disabled), execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- +LIDS_GLOBAL

  To verify the signatures of the updated packages, execute the command:

    # rpm -Kv files

OVERVIEW
- --------
  In an upcoming paper, Brice Canvel (EPFL), Alain Hiltgen (UBS), Serge
  Vaudenay (EPFL), and Martin Vuagnoux (EPFL, Ilion) describe and
  demonstrate a timing-based attack on CBC cipher suites used in SSL and
  TLS.

  OpenSSL has been found to vulnerable to this attack.  This update
  fixes these vulnerabilities.

  Please refer to the OpenSSL advisory for more information on this
  attack:

    http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20030219.txt

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has
  assigned the name CAN-2003-0078 to this issue.
