Oracle MySQL < 5.0.40 IF Query NULL Dereference DoS



The remote database server is prone to a denial of service attack.


The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is reportedly affected by a denial of service vulnerability that may be triggered with a specially crafted IF query. An attacker who can execute arbitrary SELECT statements may be able to leverage this issue to crash the affected service.


Upgrade to version 5.0.40 or higher.
