I was devloping the software where i was suppose to implement the stop query execution in a SSL connection mode.

For this i decided to make use of mysql_kill(), and it was working fine in normal connection , where i use to kill the thread associated with that query.

While implementing the same using a SSL connection i found that everytime the program executed the mysql_kill() , the server crashes .....

I think u should definately look into this.

How to repeat:
Start a mysql server ( I tested on 5.0.24a-community-nt-log, 5.1.14-beta-community ) with 
" mysqld --ssl-ca=cacert.pem --ssl-cert=server-cert.pem --ssl-key=server-key.pem "
as the starting command.

Then use any program to call mysql_kill(),

Windows Xp returns a crash report with the "send or don't send" options and the mysqld crashes.

test case. Thanks in advance.

I have added the file in zip mode to /pub/mysql/upload.
If u cannot find it plz tell me , i am new to it and not sure if i have done it correctly,

The source is a simple c++ code written on .net platform,
I think it will clear my point.

If u need more info . please feel free to ask
I would be happy to contibute in ur proj.

Thx you

Thank you for the feedback. Which is the zip filename? and it is small
you can attach it here using the files tab and private if you want.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry about that , its named  "SSl Sample.zip" in the "upload" folder.
It is a .net project so its kind of big. and the comment on the web site said if it is more then 200 kb , upload it in "upload" folder 

I have also attached only the code part here , u can have a look at that.
hope this time i am doing everything right :-)

Thank you for the bug report. I was able to crash the Windows and Linux
servers with your application (call stack attached for both). However
you need to use the multi-threaded client approach for that kind of
application, anyway the server should not crash disregarding the client

Thx for ur quick response , 

Obviously we are using multi threaded approach for our application 

The prog that i send you is just for demo for the crash and was happy that you could find the crash easily. 

hoping for quick fix ,

Bikas ,

  Bug#25203 Mysql crashes when mysql_kill() is executed in a connection using SSL
   - It's too early to free the SSL object in 'vio_ssl_close'. There
     might still be a thread using or reading from it on platforms
     where we need to close the active connection/socket in order
     to break the read.  
   - Add new function 'vio_ssl_delete' and install it as the viodelete
     function for SSL connections.
