MySQL 5.1.47 and 5.0.91 released - Two strong reasons to upgrade

MySQL security MySQL has released security updates for MySQL 5.1.47 and 5.0.91. The most important changes in these releases are fixes of three security bugs. One of them is a problem that had been lurking in the code for many years, and it was found by chance when one of our developers, testing something unrelated, stumbled upon one of the vulnerabilities. Later on, when analyzing the bug, the developers found one more issue, and they fixed it as well.

MySQL 5.1.47

In addition to the security update, MySQL 5.1.47 is also very important for an additional reason. The InnoDB plugin that ships with this version has been updated to 1.0.8, which is considered to be of General Availability (GA) quality.

There are more changes, including some twists to the error log, to make replication administration more robust.

MySQL 5.0.91 security update

Together with MySQl 5.1.47, there is a security update of MySQL 5.0.91.

Since MySQL 5.0 is now in Extended Support state, the binaries are not in the main download pages, but only in the archives. As the MySQL Lifecycle Policy says, only serious security bugs are fixed, and the binaries are provided at the company's discretion.

If you are still using MySQL 5.0, this is a good moment to upgrade to 5.1.
