Public Date:
640819: CVE-2010-3835 MySQL: crash with user variables, assignments, joins... (MySQL Bug #55564)

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

MySQL 5.1 before 5.1.51 and 5.5 before 5.5.6 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (mysqld server crash) by performing a user-variable assignment in a logical expression that is calculated and stored in a temporary table for GROUP BY, then causing the expression value to be used after the table is created, which causes the expression to be re-evaluated instead of accessing its value from the table.
