Notes on the flaws
Authored by: twa on Sunday, December 15 2002 @ 16:01 CET

Note that in order to exploit these flaws you need to be a local or remote MySQL user. If you access MySQL through an additional authentication layer or some code accesses the database on behalf of you, these flaws are not possible (or at least very very hard) to exploit.

In addition, one of these flaws will probably not materialize on Windows.

But you should upgrade anyway, either from ports (if you run FreeBSD) or by visiting http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql-3.23.html
