Description Sam Fowler 2018-05-15 05:31:12 UTC
Versions of mysql before 2.14.0 are vulnerable to remove memory exposure.

Affected versions of mysql package allocate and send an uninitialized memory over the network when a number is provided as a password.

Only mysql running on Node.js versions below 6.0.0 is affected due to a throw added in newer node.js versions.
