MySQL mysqld Privilege Escalation Vulnerability
A vulnerability has been discovered for MySQL that may allow the mysqld service to start with elevated privileges.
An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by creating a DATADIR/my.cnf that includes the line 'user=root' under the '[mysqld]' option section.
When the mysqld service is executed, it will run as the root user instead of the default user.
This may allow an attacker to obtain elevated privileges on a compromised system.
