A vulnerability has been reported in MySQL, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the server when parsing a query string that is escaped with the "mysql_real_escape_string()" function. This can potentially be exploited in an environment that uses multi-byte character encoding to bypass SQL injection escaping.
