-------- Original Message --------
Subject: MySQL 5.1.28-rc has been released
Date: Sat, 13 Sep 2008 16:15:37 +0200
From: Kent Boortz



Dear MySQL users,


We are proud to present to you the MySQL Server 5.1.28-rc release, a new "release candidate" version of the popular open source database.

Bear in mind that this is still a "candidate" release, and as with any other pre-production release, caution should be taken when installing on production level systems or systems with critical data. For production level systems using 5.0, we would like to direct your attention to the product description of MySQL Enterprise at:

http://mysql.com/products/enterprise/

The MySQL 5.1.28-rc release is now available in source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/

and mirror sites. Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time, so if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes, patches etc.:

http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Contributing

The following section lists the changes from version to version in the
MySQL source code since the latest released version of MySQL 5.1, the
MySQL 5.1.26-rc release. It can also be viewed online at

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-28.html

Sincerely,

Kent Boortz
The MySQL build team at Sun Microsystems

=======================================================================

Important bugs fixed (5.1.28):

* Important Change: Security Fix: It was possible to circumvent privileges through the creation of MyISAM tables employing the DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options to overwrite existing table files in the MySQL data directory. Use of the MySQL data directory in DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY is now disallowed. This is now also true of these options when used with partitioned tables and individual partitions of such
tables.(Bug#32167: http://bugs.mysql.com/32167, CVE-2008-2079
(http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-2079))

* Security Enhancement: The server consumed excess memory while parsing statements with hundreds or thousands of nested boolean conditions (such as OR (OR ... (OR ... ))). This could lead to a server crash or incorrect statement execution, or cause other client statements to fail due to lack of memory. The latter result constitutes a denial of service. (Bug#38296: http://bugs.mysql.com/38296)

* Incompatible Change: An additional correction to the original MySQL 5.1.23 fix was made to normalize directory names before adding them to the list of directories. This prevents "/etc/" and "/etc" from being considered different, for example. (Bug#20748: http://bugs.mysql.com/20748) See also Bug#38180: http://bugs.mysql.com/38180
