MySQL Command Line Client HTML Special Characters HTML Injection Vulnerability

MySQL is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because the application's command-line client fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in dynamically generated content.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would run in the context of the affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or to control how the site is rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible.
