The remote database server is affected by a remote code execution
The remote host is running a version of MySQL that is older than
MySQL is a database that runs on both Linux/BSD and Windows platforms.
This version is vulnerable to a length overflow within it's
mysql_real_connect() function. The overflow is due to an error in the
processing of a return Domain (DNS) record. An attacker, exploiting
this flaw, would need to control a DNS server, which would be queried
by the MySQL server. A successful attack would give the attacker
the ability to execute arbitrary code on the remote machine.
