The remote database server is susceptible to a denial of service
The version of MySQL Enterprise Server 5.0 installed on the remote
host is earlier than 5.0.66. 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.
