MySQL Enterprise Server 5.0 < 5.0.52 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by several issues.

Description :

The version of MySQL Enterprise Server 5.0 installed on the remote
host is earlier than 5.0.52. Such versions reportedly are affected by
the following issues :

- 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 retained the original DEFINER value, even
when altered by another user, which could allow that
user to gain the access rights of the view. (Bug
#29908)

- 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)
