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-2005:070 (MySQL).
A vulnerability in MySQL would allow a user with grant rights to a database
with a name containing an underscore character ('_') to have the ability to
grant rights to other databases with similar names. This problem was
previously discovered and fixed, but a new case where the problem still existed
was recently discovered.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
