Synopsis :

The remote database service is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of MySQL 4.1 installed on the remote host is earlier than

vulnerabilities :

- It is possible for a remote attacker to bypass the
password authentication mechanism using a specially
crafted packet with a zero-length scramble buff
string. (CVE-2004-0627)

- The server fails to check the length of a scrambled
password used by the 4.1 authentication protocol and
sent as part of a client authentication packet, which
can result in a stack-based buffer overflow.
