Build Identifier:

Specially crafted netcdf and fits files, could allow attackers to execute arbitrary SQL.

Due to the way the function SQLstatementIntern is called in both these cases, an attacker cannot actually get any data out of the database, but could delete data, insert data or create/drop/alter tables.

Examples are attached.

Reproducible: Always
