'Bugless' hacker attack demonstrated

The demonstration, on Wednesday at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas, involved timing attacks, a technique for breaking ciphers. It's effective against databases using BTREE, the most popular database indexing algorithm and data structure, and will use MySQL for demonstration purposes, Core researchers said.
