MySQL < 5.1.18 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801164


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of MySQL installed on the remote host reportedly is affected by three issues :

- A user can rename a table without having DROP privileges.

-If a stored routine is declared as 'SQL SECURITY INVOKER', a user may be able to gain privileges by invoking that routine.

-A user with only ALTER privileges on a partitioned table can discover information about the table that should require SELECT privileges.


Upgrade to version 5.1.18 or higher.
