Mandrake Linux Security Advisories: MySQL, xinetd

May 15, 2003, 06:00 (1 Talkback[s])

                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.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.  The verification of md5
checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:
  http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php
Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig <filename>

Package name:           xinetd
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:056
Date:                   May 14th, 2003
Affected versions:      8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1,

Problem Description:
 A vulnerability was discovered in xinetd where memory was allocated and
 never freed if a connection was refused for any reason.  Because of
 this bug, an attacker could crash the xinetd server, making
 unavailable all of the services it controls.  Other flaws were also
 discovered that could cause incorrect operation in certain strange
 configurations.
 
 These issues have been fixed upstream in xinetd version 2.3.11 which
 are provided in this update.
