Comment 1 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-02-13 05:18:28 EST

We do not currently plan to fix this issue due to the lack of further
information about the flaw and its impact. If more information becomes
available at a future date, we may revisit the issue.

Bit more additional info can be found in:


Exploit notes shown in the video indicate that the flaw is "yassl buffer overflow".  MySQL packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora do not use yaSSL and are linked against system OpenSSL library to provide SSL.  Hence if this really is a yaSSL flaw, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora packages should be unaffected.
