Flaws in SQL server implementations are a hacker’s favourite target, so perhaps there is a wry sense of humour here. Anyway, the malicious payload is at [donotclick]mysqlfordummys.ru:8080/forum/showthread.php?page=5fa58bce769e5c2c (report here) hosted on 203.80.16.81 (MYREN Infrastructure, Malaysia)
