- libmysqlclient12
- libmysqlclient12-dev

Description :

AppSecInc Team SHATTER discovered a buffer overflow in the "CREATE
FUNCTION" statement. By specifying a specially crafted long function
name, a local or remote attacker with function creation rights
could crash the server or execute arbitrary code with server
rights.

untrusted users.
