Debian Security Advisory DSA 1169-1 (mysql-dfsg-4.1)

The remote host is missing an update to mysql-dfsg-4.1 announced via advisory DSA 1169-1. Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in the MySQL database server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2006-4226 Michal Prokopiuk discovered that remote authenticated users are permitted to create and access a database if the lowercase spelling is the same as one they have been granted access to. CVE-2006-4380 Beat Vontobel discovered that certain queries replicated to a slave could crash the client and thus terminate the replication.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 4.1.11a-4sarge7. Version 4.0 is not affected by these problems. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 5.0.24-3. The replication problem only exists in version 4.1. We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-server-4.1 package.
