Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libmysqlclient-dev
- libmysqlclient12
- libmysqlclient12-dev
- mysql-client
- mysql-common
- mysql-server


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.

However, the right to create function is usually not granted to
untrusted users.

Solution :
