Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-13
(MySQL: SQL Injection)

MySQL is vulnerable to an injection flaw in mysql_real_escape() when
used with multi-byte characters.

Impact :

Due to a flaw in the multi-byte character process, an attacker is still
able to inject arbitary SQL statements into the MySQL server for
execution.

Workaround :

There are a few workarounds available: NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES mode as a
workaround for a bug in mysql_real_escape_string(): SET
sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'
SET GLOBAL
sql_mode='NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES'
and server command line options:
--sql-mode=NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES.
