Patch: MYSQL release from Mandrake Linux, Debian

Mandrake Linux and Debian have both released patches to address a flaw found in MySQL.

The flaw could allow an attacker to use the "SELECT * INTO OUTFILE" operator to overwrite a certain configuration file. This action could then be used to restart the MySQL daemon with root privileges.

The patch is available from:

Mandrake Linux: http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/advisories/advisory.php?name=MDKSA-2003:057

Debian: http://www.debian.org/security/2003/dsa-303
