Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in mysql: MySQL 5.0 before 5.0.66, 5.1 before 5.1.26, and 6.0 before 6.0.6 does not properly handle a b"" token, aka an empty bit-string literal, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service by using this token in a SQL statement . MySQL before 5.0.67 allows local users to bypass certain privilege checks by calling CREATE TABLE on a MyISAM table with modified DATA DIRECTORY or INDEX DIRECTORY arguments that are originally associated with pathnames without symlinks, and that can point to tables created at a future time at which a pathname is modified to contain a symlink to a subdirectory of the MySQL home data directory. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-4097 . Cross-site scripting vulnerability in the command-line client in MySQL 5.0.26 through 5.0.45, when the --html option is enabled, allows attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML by placing it in a database cell, which might be accessed by this client when composing an HTML document . Multiple format string vulnerabilities in the dispatch_command function in libmysqld/sql_parse.cc in mysqld in MySQL 4.0.0 through 5.0.83 allow remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service and possibly have unspecified other impact via format string specifiers in a database name in a COM_CREATE_DB or COM_DROP_DB request. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information . Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for Corporate products. This update provides fixes for this vulnerability.
