Description

The version of MySQL Enterprise Server 5.0 installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.0.52. Such versions reportedly are affected by the following issues :

  • Using RENAME TABLE against a table with explicit DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options can be used to overwrite system table information. (Bug #32111).

  • ALTER VIEW retained the original DEFINER value, even when altered by another user, which could allow that user to gain the access rights of the view. (Bug #29908)

  • When using a FEDERATED table, the local server can be forced to crash if the remote server returns a result with fewer columns than expected. (Bug #29801)
