Oracle MySQL 6.0 < 6.0.9 CREATE TABLE Security Bypass

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5333

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to security bypass attack.

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL Community Server version 6.0.9 or later.
