I did some quick real world scanning and there are very few exploitable targets right now. Mitigating factors:

1. Only 3.8.6 version is vulnerable
2. most installations are already patched
3. even if you have mysql credentials, they can be already changed
4. mysql daemon must be remotely accessible - tcp port 3306 needs to be open
5. "Host is not allowed ..." -> this is what you can get frequently, because specific mysql user is configured to be able to log in from specific IP address(es) only, usually
