Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-30 19:39:42 UTC
MySQL improperly handled LOAD DATA INFILE requests (it did not
check for SQL errors and sent an OK packet even when errors were
already reported). A remote, authenticated MySQL user could use
this flaw to cause mysqld daemon abort (assertion failure).

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-30 19:41:30 UTC
Public reproducer from [3]:

# cat t/tst.test
# The file might exist or not, it does not make any difference.
# --send is important

CREATE TABLE test.t_load (id INT NOT NULL);
--send LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'tb.txt' INTO TABLE test.t_load
