On two completely separate servers, both running MySQL 5.7.24, we've seen identical server crashs.
In both instances the same query is listed in the error report.
This is a query that runs every few seconds on the server using the c client library.

In one of the crashes, a backup process would have just started (using mysqldump) but nothing like that in the other instance.

Server Version is:
mysqld  Ver 5.7.24-enterprise-commercial-advanced for Win32 on AMD64 (MySQL Enterprise Server - Advanced Edition (Commercial))

Error report / Backtrace:

00:15:32 UTC - mysqld got exception 0xc0000005 ;
This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
Attempting to collect some information that could help diagnose the problem.
As this is a crash and something is definitely wrong, the information
collection process might fail.

It is possible that mysqld could use up to 
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 390659 K  bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

Thread pointer: 0x255dd300
Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...

How to repeat:

Thank you for your bug report.

However, in order to verify the bug, we need to be able to repeat it.

So, see if you can repeat the bug by manually running the following query:

SELECT Id, User, Host, db, Command, Time, State, SUBSTRING(Info, 1, 200) AS Info FROM information_schema.PROCESSLIST WHERE Command NOT IN('Sleep', 'Daemon', 'Binlog Dump')  AND User  NOT IN('event_scheduler', 'system user')  AND Id <> CONNECTION_ID()  AND Time >= 3;

If you are able to repeat the bug by crashing the above query, can you then send us just the output from :

SELECT * FROM information_schema.processlist;

So, that we can try to repeat it.

Thanks in advance.

That query is running every few seconds on the server(s) in question so it's not causing the crash on it's own.

We've had some more reports of this crash on a couple of other servers, but I haven't seen the details for those yet.

Will update here when I do

We will be grateful if you manage to catch the processlist that causes the crash.
