This occurs on MySQL servers configured as slaves in a MySQL replication environment where the slave server is running a newer version of MySQL than the server. The attacker would need the ability to add custom comments to a database on the MySQL server. http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=49124 http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-50.html http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/news-5-0-93.html -- -Kurt Seifried / Red Hat Security Response Team
