Description

The my_net_skip_rest function in sql/net_serv.cc in MySQL 5.0 through 5.0.91 and 5.1 before 5.1.47 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by sending a large number of packets that exceed the maximum length.

Solution(s)

  • mysql-upgrade-5_0_92
  • mysql-upgrade-5_1_47
