Critical Nessus Plugin ID 19149


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


By submitting a carefully crafted authentication packet, it is possible for an attacker to bypass password authentication in MySQL 4.1. Using a similar method, a stack buffer used in the authentication mechanism can be overflowed.
