Description

MySQL Community Server before 5.0.45 does not require privileges such as SELECT for the source table in a CREATE TABLE LIKE statement, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information such as the table structure.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_44
  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_20
