MySQL Community Server < 5.1.23 / 6.0.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801147
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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 #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)


Upgrade to version 5.1.23, 6.0.4 or higher.
