Description:
MySQL tries to prevent passwords from being logged in the client history and other files. But it doesn't prevent logging of the key which was used for AES encryption.

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/password-logging.html

How to repeat:
Use the AES encryption function and see what's in the logs.

Suggested fix:
Prevent logging of the AES function.
