Debian Security Advisory DSA 1112-1 Moritz Muehlenhoff
July 18th, 2006

Package : mysql-dfsg-4.1
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-3081 CVE-2006-3469
Debian Bug : 373913 375694

Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL database server, which may lead to denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


"Kanatoko" discovered that the server can be crashed with feeding NULL values to the str_to_date() function.


Jean-David Maillefer discovered that the server can be crashed with specially crafted date_format() function calls.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 4.1.11a-4sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) does no longer contain MySQL 4.1 packages. MySQL 5.0 from sid is not affected.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-dfsg-4.1 packages.
