The remote database server is potentially affected by multiple
User-defined functions in MySQL can allow a database user to cause
binary libraries on the host to be loaded. The insert privilege on
the table 'mysql.func' is required for a user to create user-defined
functions. When running on Windows and possibly other operating
systems, MySQL is potentially affected by the following
- If an invalid library is requested the Windows
function 'LoadLibraryEx' will block processing until
an error dialog box is acknowledged on the server.
It is not likely that non-Windows systems are affected
by this particular issue.
- MySQL requires that user-defined libraries contain
functions with names fitting the formats: 'XXX_deinit'
or 'XXX_init'. However, other libraries are known to
contain functions fitting these formats and, when called
upon, can cause application crashes, memory corruption
and stack pollution.

There is currently no known fix or patch to address these issues.
Instead, make sure access to create user-defined functions is
