MySQL 6.0 < 6.0.6 Empty Bit-String Literal Token SQL Statement DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote database server is susceptible to a denial of service

Description :

The version of MySQL 6.0 installed on the remote host is earlier than
6.0.6. 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.
