low Nessus Plugin ID 17802


The remote database server allows a local user to access unauthorized data.


The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is earlier than 4.1.21 / 5.0.24 and thus reportedly allows a local user to access a table after his privileges on it were revoked.


Upgrade to MySQL version 5.0.24 or later.
