Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: mariadb-galera security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:2077-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Advisory URL:
Issue date: 2016-10-18
CVE Names: CVE-2016-6662

1. Summary:

An update for mariadb-galera is now available for Red Hat OpenStack
Platform 8.0 (Liberty).

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8.0 (Liberty) – x86_64

3. Description:

MariaDB is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server that is binary
compatible with MySQL. Galera is a synchronous multi-master cluster for

Security Fix(es):

* It was discovered that the MySQL logging functionality allowed writing to
MySQL configuration files. An administrative database user, or a database
user with FILE privileges, could possibly use this flaw to run arbitrary
commands with root privileges on the system running the database server.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, both the mariadb-server and mariadb-galera-server packages
shipped the client-facing libraries, and
As a result, the mariadb-galera-server package would fail to install
because of package conflicts. With this update, these libraries have been
moved from mariadb-galera-server to mariadb-libs, and the
mariadb-galera-server package installs successfully. (BZ#1376905)

* Because Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 changed the return format of the
“systemctl is-enabled” command as consumed by shell scripts, the
mariadb-galera RPM package, upon installation, erroneously detected that
the MariaDB service was enabled when it was not. As a result, the Red Hat
OpenStack Platform installer, which then tried to run mariadb-galera using
Pacemaker and not systemd, failed to start Galera. With this update,
mariadb-galera’s RPM installation scripts now use a different systemctl
command, correctly detecting the default MariaDB as disabled, and the
installer can succeed. (BZ#1376913)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

After installing this update, the MariaDB server daemon (mysqld) will be
restarted automatically.
