The remote database server may be affected by a security bypass
The installed version of MySQL may be affected by a security bypass
vulnerability because the salt used during password validation does not
change when switching users with the 'COM_CHANGE_USER' command.
Additionally, the connection is not reset when invalid credentials are
submitted. Normally, when a connection is initiated and invalid
credentials are submitted, the connection is terminated, which slows
brute-force attempts substantially.
