Description Vincent Danen 2010-10-06 18:36:14 UTC
A flaw in MySQL versions prior to 5.1.51 [1] was reported [2] that could allow an authenticated user to kill connections to MySQL.  During evaluation of arguments to extreme-value functions (such as LEAST() and GREATEST()), type errors did not propagate properly, causing the server to crash, and any other connections to the server to be terminated.
