  <description>
    <p>
    Sergei Golubchik reported that MySQL imposes no restrictions on the
    specification of "DATA DIRECTORY" or "INDEX DIRECTORY" in SQL "CREATE
    TABLE" statements.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    An authenticated remote attacker could create MyISAM tables, specifying
    DATA or INDEX directories that contain future table files by other
    database users, or existing table files in the MySQL data directory,
    gaining access to those tables.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All MySQL users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-db/mysql-5.0.60-r1"</code>
  </resolution>
