The remote database server is susceptible to a denial of service
The version of MySQL 5.1 installed on the remote host is earlier than
5.1.26. A bug in such versions can lead to a server crash in
'Item_bin_string::Item_bin_string' when handling an empty bit-string
literal (b''). Using a simple SELECT statement, an authenticated
remote user can leverage this issue to crash the database server and
deny service to legitimate users.
