Arbitrary code could be executed on the remote database server.
The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is older than
4.1.13a or 5.0.10 and as such, may have been linked with zlib 1.2.2.
On operating systems where the MySQL binaries are statically linked
(mainly Windows and HP-UX), a remote attacker could crash the server
or execute arbitrary code by triggering a buffer overflow in zlib.
See also :
Upgrade to MySQL version 4.1.13a / 5.0.10 or later.
