Percona Support Team New Year Greetings!

In Percona Support we spend a few hours per week doing Labs: short collective projects, not directly related to the tickets. One of our last labs was about to get ready for the winter holiday season which means preparing the tree and decorating it. To do it we used our favorite tools: MySQL, and ASCII art (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII_art). As a result, we created a function that prints into the terminal a New Year Tree (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Year_tree) and decorates it with symbols we want. For example, to create a three-level tree, decorated with starts, call the function as follow:

$ mysql ny_tree -e "select ny_tree(3, '*')" --vertical --skip-column-names -s
*************************** 1. row ***************************

   /\
  /__\
  /* \
 /____\
 /  * \
/______\
   ||

Since MySQL supports Unicode you can use any symbol, having it has …

Reminder: TokuDB Storage Engine Will Be Disabled by Default in Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.26

As we’ve communicated in our blog post in May, the TokuDB Storage Engine has been marked as “deprecated” in Percona Server for MySQL 8.0. It will be removed in a future version (Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.28, expected to ship in Q1 2022).

With the release of Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.26, the storage engine will still be included in the binary builds and packages but will be disabled by default. If you are upgrading from a previous version, the TokuDB Storage Engine plugin will fail with an error message at server startup if it is installed.

You will still be able to re-enable it manually so that you can perform the necessary migration steps.

Re-enabling the TokuDB …

CVE-2020-29488: Changes in How Absolute Paths are Handled in Percona XtraBackup xbstream

Due to CVE-2020-29488, Percona XtraBackup is modifying how xbstream handles absolute paths to prevent malicious file injections. Like the tar archiving utility, the new behavior removes the leading ‘/’ character and references to the parent directory.

Fixes are available in Percona XtraBackup versions:

>= 2.4.22

>= 8.0.23-16.0

For example, ../../../d1/../d2/h.txt will be saved in the stream with the relative path ./d2/h.txt.

The updated function provides a warning when creating a stream with a file with an absolute path:

$ xbstream -c /tmp/data

xbstream: Removing leading '/' from member names

The function also will not extract …
