This update for mariadb fixes the following issues:
Updated to MariaDB 10.0.40-1.
Security issues fixed:

  • CVE-2019-2805, CVE-2019-2740, CVE-2019-2739, CVE-2019-2737, CVE-2019-2614, CVE-2019-2627. (bsc#1132826) (bsc#1141798).

Non-security issues fixed:
  • Adjusted mysql-systemd-helper ("shutdown protected MySQL" section) so it checks both ping response and the pid in a process list as it can take some time till the process is terminated. Otherwise it can lead to "found left-over process" situation when regular mariadb is started. (bsc#1143215)
  • Fixed IP resolving in mysql_install_db script. (bsc#1142058, bsc#1127027, MDEV-18526)
