The remote database server is susceptible to a local symlink attack.
The version of MySQL Community Server installed on the remote host
reportedly fails to check whether a file to which a symlink points
exists when using RENAME TABLE against a table with explicit DATA
DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options. A local attacker may be able
to leverage this issue to overwrite system table information by
replacing the file to which the symlink points.
