Description :

A number of problems have been discovered in the MySQL database
server :

Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered an insecure temporary file
vulnerability in the mysqlhotcopy script when using the scp method
(CVE-2004-0457).

Oleksandr Byelkin discovered that the 'ALTER TABLE ... RENAME' would
check the CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table rather than the new
one (CVE-2004-0835).

Lukasz Wojtow discovered a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect
function (CVE-2004-0836).
