The remote database server allows a local user to circumvent
The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is earlier than
5.0.88 / 5.1.42 / 5.5.0 / 6.0.14 and thus reportedly allows a local
user to circumvent privileges through creation of MyISAM tables using
the 'DATA DIRECTORY' and 'INDEX DIRECTORY' options to overwrite
existing table files in the application's data directory. This is the
same flaw as CVE-2008-2079, which was not completely fixed.
