Description

The version of MySQL Community Server 5.1 installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.1.46 and thus potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • A local user may be able to issue a 'DROP TABLE' command for one MyISAM table and remove the data and index files of a different MyISAM table. (Bug #40980)

  • The application does not correct check privileges in calls to 'UNINSTALL PLUGIN', which could be abused by an unprivileged user to uninstall plugins loaded dynamically. (Bug #51770)
