The Register: All ready for that Easter holiday? Here’s a mild MySQL security bug . “A programming blunder has been uncovered in Oracle’s MySQL that can potentially leak usernames and passwords to man-in-the-middle eavesdroppers. Known as ‘The Riddle,’ the flaw potentially allows a miscreant to intercept and obtain login credentials sent from MySQL clients 5.5 and 5.6 to servers. Apparently, a fix introduced in versions 5.5.49 and 5.6.30 isn’t enough to fully address the design flaw. Versions 5.7 and later, as well as MariaDB systems, are not vulnerable.”
