The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is earlier than
5.0.51a / 5.1.23 / 6.0.4 and thus reportedly affected by the following
two vulnerabilities :
- An attacker may be able to cause the the federated
handler and daemon to crash when the federated engine
issues a SHOW TABLE STATUS LIKE query by having a
malicious server return a response with less than
14 columns. (MySQL bug #29801 / CVE-2007-6304)
- It fails to update the DEFINER value of a view when that
is altered, which could allow an authenticated user to
gain additional access through the ALTER VIEW. (MySQL
bug #29908 / CVE-2007-6303)
