MySQL User-Defined Function Buffer Overflow Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks MySQL version number
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote database server is affected by a buffer overflow flaw.
According to its version number, the installation of MySQL on the
remote host may be prone to a buffer overflow when copying the name of
a user-defined function into a stack-based buffer. With sufficient
access to create a user-defined function, a possible hacker may be able to
exploit this and execute arbitrary code within the context of the
affected database server process.
