FreeBSD : mysql -- erroneous access restrictions applied to table renames (035d17b2-484a-11d9-813c-00065be4b5b6)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18823


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


A Red Hat advisory reports :

Oleksandr Byelkin discovered that 'ALTER TABLE ... RENAME' checked the CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table instead of the new one.

Table access restrictions, on the affected MySQL servers, may accidentally or intentionally be bypassed due to this bug.


Update the affected packages.
