Passwords could be brute-forced on the remote database server.
The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is older than
4.1.1. As such, it reportedly uses a weak algorithm to hash the
passwords. A attacker who can read the mysql.user table will be able
to retrieve the clear text passwords quickly by brute-force attack.

Upgrade to MySQL version 4.1.1 or later.
