Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-12-02 02:12:17 EST
A flaw was found in Mysql in which if an attacker authenticates using an incorrect password with the old authentication mechanism from mysql 4.x and below to a mysql 5.x server the mysql server will respond with a different message than Access Denied, what makes User Account Enumeration possible.
