Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the MySQL package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:119 (MySQL).

A number of problems have been discovered in the MySQL database server:

Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered an insecure temporary file vulnerability in
the mysqlhotcopy script when using the scp method (CVE-2004-0457).

Oleksandr Byelkin discovered that the 'ALTER TABLE ... RENAME' would check the
CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table rather than the new one (CVE-2004-0835).

Lukasz Wojtow discovered a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect function

Dean Ellis discovered that multiple threads ALTERing the same (or different)
MERGE tables to change the UNION can cause the server to crash or stall

The updated MySQL packages have been patched to protect against these issues.
