openSUSE Security Update: xtrabackup: update to 2.1.6

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2013:1864-1
Rating: moderate
References: #852224
Cross-References: CVE-2013-6394
Affected Products:
openSUSE 13.1

An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.


Percona XtraBackup was updated to 2.1.6 [bnc#852224]
- New Features:
* New innobackupex --force-non-empty-directories option
* now supports logs created with the new log block
- New Features specific to MySQL 5.6: option
innodb_log_checksum_algorithm in Percona Server 5.6
- Bugs Fixed:
* innobackupex --copy-back fails on empty
* A fixed initialization vector (constant string) was
used while encrypting the data. This opened the
encrypted stream/data to plaintext attacks among
others. CVE-2013-6394
* innobackupex --version-check is now on by default.
* Since Version Check is enabled by default, new optin
--no-version-check option has been introduced to
disable it.
* xtrabackup_slave_info didn't contain any GTID
information, which could cause master_auto_position
not to work properly
* now supports absolute paths in innodb_data_file_path
* wouldn't back up the empty directory created with
mkdir (i.e. test) outside of the server which could
lead to inconsistencies during the Percona XtraDB
Cluster State Snapshot Transfer.
* wasn't able to perform backups to the NFS mount in some
NFS configurations, because it was trying to preserve
file ownership.
* unable to perform backup if innodb_log_arch_dir
variable was used in server configuration
* Race condition in start_query_killer child code could
cause parent MySQL connection to close.
- Bugs Fixed specific to MySQL 5.6:
* xtrabackup_56 was using CRC32 as the default checksum
algorithm This could cause error if the
innodb_checksum_algorithm value was changed to
strict_innodb value after a restore.
* xtrabackup_56 binary didn't store the server’s
innodb_checksum_algorithm value to backup-my.cnf. This
value is needed because it affects the on-disk data
- update and tag percona-xtrabackup-2.1.x-nodoc.patch
