MySQL < 6.0.9-alpha / 5.5.3 Access Control Weakness
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 17837
Access restrictions can be bypassed on the remote database server.
The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is older than 6.0.9-alpha / 5.5.3. As such, it reportedly allows a remote attacker to bypass access restrictions when the data directory contains a symbolic link to a different file system.
Upgrade to MySQL version 6.0.9-alpha / 5.5.3 or later.
