Security Fix: The server was susceptible to a buffer-overflow attack due to a failure 
to perform bounds checking on the table name argument of a COM_FIELD_LIST command 
packet. By sending long data for the table name, a buffer is overflown, which could be 
exploited by an authenticated user to inject malicious code. (Bug#53237, CVE-2010-1850)
