    I know MySQL 4.0.25 has been out for some time now, and MySQL 4.1.13 just came out recently, but it's time for the cPanel devs to get these latest versions on mysqlup and the cpanel mirrors.

    I installed the RPMs myself and they ran fine, but when I ran upcp, they all get reverted back to 4.1.11.

    Can you please update cPanel to use these two latest versions of MySQL? I'd put in a bug report for an enhancement, but my last one hasn't even been looked at either.

    I haven't seen an official release of .25 .. according to the MySQL news page, its not yet released:
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/news-4-0-x.html

    Is there any particular reason you require .25 ?

    MySQL 4.0.24 is available with a quick /scripts/mysqlup

    By the way, if you want to get the attention of the cpanel developers, lodge an enhancement request via bugzilla.cpanel.net as you're post will get lost and will most likely not even get viewed by the staff themselves.

    is there really big issues with the update to 4.1.13? I am using 4.1.11 now and not having any problems with it.

    Usually i would update packages only if I really have to. Such as to fix some big security hole or to use the new features in it. No point wasting time facing the update dilemmas when only updating for the sake of updating.

    It just so happens that there is a rather important security fix with the 4.1.13 update. ;)

    Just giving a thumbs up for a quick upgrade to 4.0.25 from Cpanel please! This is quite a serious vulnerability (DoS, remote code execution, ... you name it).

    High priority if you ask me.

    4.0 apparently isn't affected http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=11844

    It shouldn't be all that difficult to toss together a simple bash script to update the rpms from the vendor if you want to skip ahead of the QA process from cPanel. I'd rather they QA properly rather than toss it out without notice / heads up / production testing.

    It's not an easy one for cpanel. If they release the software ASAP, they get pie tossed in their faces. If they wait it out and QA it properly, they get pie in their faces. I don't know of any known exploits for this, nore do I believe its all that much to worry about as long as you take precautions to secure your boxes properly.

    Remember, cPanel isn't your system admin or a replacement for one in any way. :D

    Indeed, the Securityfocus report seems wrong on this.

    No, but it's risky to start mixing rpms from the distribution and the cpanel packages.
    cPanel maybe isn't my system admin replacement, but one thing they sell is peace of mind when it comes to security (even though you can't offer 100% security and it's still a big responsability for the sysadmin to check his systems).. so that's why I like quick responses when it comes to security issues. Thankfully in this case no urgency is needed for users of the 4.0 branch.

    For what its worth, as far as I know, cPanel use the pre-compiled RPM Binary files available from mysql. No mixing involved.

    What about the "release" tier of cPanel?

    If I run:

    /scripts/upcp

    will I get updated to MySQl 4.1.13?

    I just tried:

    /scripts/mysqlup

    It said mysql 4.1.11 is up to date.

    Is your installation BETA, EDGE, and CURRENT? Mine is RELEASE, so no update for me yet as well :(

    If you are really wanting it, just upgrade the 6 rpms manually.

    Just disable mysqlup by doing chmod 644 /scripts/mysqlup then chattr +i /scripts/mysqlup
