Description

sql/sql_table.cc in MySQL 5.0.x through 5.0.88, 5.1.x through 5.1.41, and 6.0 before 6.0.9-alpha, when the data home directory contains a symlink to a different filesystem, allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended access restrictions by calling CREATE TABLE with a (1) DATA DIRECTORY or (2) INDEX DIRECTORY argument referring to a subdirectory that requires following this symlink.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-6_0_9

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
