The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in a way MySQL handled symbolic links when database
tables were created with explicit 'DATA' and 'INDEX DIRECTORY'
options. An authenticated user could create a table that would
overwrite tables in other databases, causing destruction of data or
allowing the user to elevate privileges. (CVE-2007-5969)
A flaw was found in a way MySQL's InnoDB engine handled spatial
indexes. An authenticated user could create a table with spatial
indexes, which are not supported by the InnoDB engine, that would
cause the mysql daemon to crash when used. This issue only causes a
temporary denial of service, as the mysql daemon will be automatically
restarted after the crash. (CVE-2007-5925)
