Vulnerability in the MySQL Server component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent: Server: Security: Encryption ). Supported versions that are affected are 5.6.34 and earlier and 5.7.16 and earlier. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise MySQL Server.

It seems this CVE is for this change mentioned in the MySQL 5.6.35 and 5.7.17 release notes:

  MySQL Enterprise Notes

  Enterprise Encryption for MySQL Enterprise Edition now enables server
  administrators to impose limits on maximum key length by setting
  environment variables. These can be used to prevent clients from using
  excessive CPU resources by passing very long key lengths to key-generation
  operations. For more information, see Enterprise Encryption Usage and
  Examples. (Bug #19687742)


Affected code is specific to MySQL Enterprise, not available in the community version.
