[slackware-security]  mariadb / mysql (SSA:2016-257-01)

New mariadb or mysql packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mariadb-10.0.27-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a critical vulnerability which can allow local and
  remote attackers to inject malicious settings into MySQL configuration
  files (my.cnf).  A successful exploitation could allow attackers to
  execute arbitrary code with root privileges which would then allow them
  to fully compromise the server.
  This issue was discovered and reported by Dawid Golunski.
  For more information, see:
    http://legalhackers.com/advisories/MySQL-Exploit-Remote-Root-Code-Execution-Privesc-CVE-2016-6662.html
    https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-10465
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-6662
  (* Security fix *)
