Description

The version of MariaDB running on the remote host is 10.1.x prior to 10.1.5. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to a flaw in the wait_for_workers_idle() function that occurs when handling worker threads. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the database.
