Important: mysql security updateMySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. MySQL is aclient/server implementation consisting of a server daemon (mysqld), andmany different client programs and libraries.A flaw was found in a way MySQL handled symbolic links when database tableswere created with explicit "DATA" and "INDEX DIRECTORY" options. Anauthenticated user could create a table that would overwrite tables inother databases, causing destruction of data or allowing the user toelevate privileges. (CVE-2007-5969)A flaw was found in a way MySQL's InnoDB engine handled spatial indexes. Anauthenticated user could create a table with spatial indexes, which are notsupported by the InnoDB engine, that would cause the mysql daemon to crashwhen used.
