Oracle MySQL 6.0 < 6.0.9 CREATE TABLE Security Bypass

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5333


The remote host is vulnerable to security bypass attack.


The version of MySQL 6.0 installed on the remote host is earlier than 6.0.9, and thus potentially affected by a security bypass vulnerability. The application allows an attacker to bypass certain checks when creating a table with certain 'DATA DIRECTORY' and 'INDEX DIRECTORY' options that are within the MySQL home data directory.


Upgrade to MySQL Community Server version 6.0.9 or later.
