This update fixes one important vulnerability (CVE-2014-4274) and batches
together two other minor fixes (CVE-2013-2162, CVE-2014-0001).

    execution of code through the creation of a mysql configuration file
    pointing to an attacker-controlled plugin_dir.

    be stolen by a local user monitoring that file while the package gets

    string that is too big for the allocated buffer.
