Description

MySQL before 4.1.23, 5.0.x before 5.0.42, and 5.1.x before 5.1.18 does not require the DROP privilege for RENAME TABLE statements, which allows remote authenticated users to rename arbitrary tables.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-4_1_23
  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_42
  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_18
