<p>
MySQL is a popular multi-threaded, multi-user SQL server.
</p>

<description>
<p>
MySQL is vulnerable to an injection flaw in mysql_real_escape() when
used with multi-byte characters.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
Due to a flaw in the multi-byte character process, an attacker is still
able to inject arbitary SQL statements into the MySQL server for
execution.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There are a few workarounds available: NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES mode as a
workaround for a bug in mysql_real_escape_string(): SET
sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'; SET GLOBAL
sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'; and server command line options:
--sql-mode=NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-db/mysql-4.1.20&quot;</code>
</resolution>
