Package name MySQL
Date January 22nd, 2001
Advisory ID MDKSA-2001:014
Affected versions 7.2
Synopsis Updated MySQL packages fix insecure viewing of crypted passwords

Problem Description

A security problem exists in all versions of MySQL after 3.23.2 and
prior to 3.23.31. The problem is that the SHOW GRANTS command could
be executed by any user making it possible for anyone with a MySQL
account to get the crypted password from the mysql.user table. The new
3.23.31 version fixes this.

Due to library changes, the previously announced PHP update
(MDKSA-2001:013) has been updated as well so that the php-mysql module
supports this new version of MySQL. It also corrects the upgrade
scripts in the package, however you will still need to verify that PHP
support is enabled in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf Apache
configuration file and verify that the installed modules are
uncommented in your /etc/php.ini file.
