MySQL Community Server < 5.1.48 Denial of Service

Low Nessus Plugin ID 47158

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by denial of service vulnerability.

Description

The version of MySQL Community Server installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.1.48 and thus potentially affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

The 'ALTER DATABASE' command can be misused by a user with 'ALTER' permissions to cause the MySQL data directory to become unusable.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL Community Server 5.1.48 or later.
