MySQL Community Server < 5.1.23 / 6.0.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801147

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by several issues.

Description

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)

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.1.23, 6.0.4 or higher.
