I am not sure, if anyone asked for a CVE id for slash yet, if so please point
to it and disregard this request.
The Slashdote (also just known as Slash) vulnerability was an SQL injection.
Its effect was to allow a user with no special authorization to read any
information from any table the Slash site's mysql user was authorized to read
(which may include other databases, including information_schema).
