"MaxDB is a heavy-duty, SAP-certified open source database for OLTP and OLAP usage which offers high reliability,
scalability and a very comprehensive feature set." (quote from http://www.mysql.com/products/maxdb/)
Two vulnerabilities in MaxDB WebTools have been found and reported to MySQL team.
1 - WebDav handler long 'Overwrite' header stack overflow
Remote root/SYSTEM. Easy to exploit.

To reproduce it, execute the following command:
$ telnet localhost 9999
