$MySQL Community Server to 5.1.23 / 6.0.4 multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

1. It is possible, by creating a partitioned table using the DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options, to gain privileges on other tables having the same name as the partitioned table.
2. Using RENAME TABLE against a table with explicit DATA DIRECTORY and INDEX DIRECTORY options can be used to overwrite system table information.
3. ALTER VIEW retains the original DEFINER value, even when altered by another user, which can allow that user to gain the access rights of the view.
4. 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.

Remediation

Upgrade to MySQL Community Server version 5.1.23 / 6.0.4 or later.
