The remote database server is affected by several issues.
The version of MySQL Server installed on the remote host reportedly is
affected by the following issues :
- It is possible, by creating a partitioned table using
the DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options, to gain
privileges on other tables having the same name as the
partitioned table. (Bug #32091)
- Using RENAME TABLE against a table with explicit DATA
DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options can be used to
overwrite system table information. (Bug #32111).
- ALTER VIEW retains the original DEFINER value, even
when altered by another user, which can allow that
user to gain the access rights of the view. (Bug
- When using a FEDERATED table, the local server can be
forced to crash if the remote server returns a result
with fewer columns than expected. (Bug #29801)
