Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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

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).
