Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200804-04 (MySQL: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in MySQL:
Mattias Jonsson reported that a 'RENAME TABLE' command against a     table with explicit 'DATA DIRECTORY' and 'INDEX DIRECTORY' options     would overwrite the file to which the symlink points     (CVE-2007-5969).
Martin Friebe discovered that MySQL does not     update the DEFINER value of a view when the view is altered     (CVE-2007-6303).
Philip Stoev discovered that the federated     engine expects the response of a remote MySQL server to contain a     minimum number of columns in query replies (CVE-2007-6304).

Impact :

An authenticated remote attacker could exploit the first vulnerability     to overwrite MySQL system tables and escalate privileges, or use the     second vulnerability to gain privileges via an 'ALTER VIEW' statement.
Remote federated MySQL servers could cause a Denial of Service in the     local MySQL server by exploiting the third vulnerability.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
