Description Nat Makarevitch 2006-08-22 22:04:26 UTC
Stoping the database (MySQL 5.0, Debian testing) server during an operation
raises an exception which dumps various informations to the visitor's browser.
Among them:
 * the database name
 * the corresponding login and password

It reveals secrets, albeit $wgShowSQLErrors=false;

The URL provided leads to the dump (slightly edited)

Thank you

Fixed under 1.8.2 (but $wgShowSQLErrors seems useless now)
