Several security issues were fixed in MariaDB.

Software Description:
– mariadb-10.3: MariaDB database
– mariadb-10.1: MariaDB database


It was discovered that MariaDB didn’t properly validate the content of a packet
received from a server. A remote attacker could use this vulnerability to sent
a specialy crafted file to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2020-13249)

It was discovered that MariaDB has other security issues. An attacker can cause
a hang or frequently repeatable crash (denial of service). (CVE-2020-15180,
CVE-2020-2752, CVE-2020-2760, CVE-2020-2812, CVE-2020-2814)

In addition to security fixes, the updated packages contain bug fixes, new
features, and possibly incompatible changes.
