Origial advisory:

  "AppSecInc Team SHATTER discovered a buffer overflow in the "CREATE
  FUNCTION" statement. By specifying a specially crafted long function
  name, a local or remote attacker with function creation privileges
  could crash the server or execute arbitrary code with server
  privileges.

  However, the right to create function is usually not granted to
  untrusted users."
