<package name="dev-db/mysql" auto="yes" arch="*">

MySQL is a popular multi-threaded, multi-user SQL server.
Joe Gallo and Artem Russakovskii reported an error in the
convert_search_mode_to_innobase() function in in the
InnoDB engine that is leading to a failed assertion when handling
CONTAINS operations.
<impact type="normal">
A remote authenticated attacker with ALTER privileges could send a
specially crafted request to a vulnerable database server possibly
leading to a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-db/mysql-5.0.44-r2&quot;</code>
