information normally visible only to users with SELECT privilege.

MySQL before 5.1.18
Comment 3 Stefan Cornelius 2007-06-13 07:51:58 EDT
are you guys sure about this? fc6 and f7 seems to ship mysql 5.0.something. the
partitions (which are important for this issue) are, afaik, actually a new
feature of 5.1.x, which is beta/unstable - so only unstable mysql 5.1 versions
prior to 5.1.18 are affected and we dodged the bullet here?
Comment 4 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-06-13 08:06:49 EDT
Stefan: thanks for the notice. I don't even know what partitioned tables are,
so I trusted what CVE read, and it was "MySQL before 5.1.18".

FC7        mysql-5.0.37-2.fc7
FC6        mysql-5.0.27-1.fc6
FC5        mysql-5.0.27-1.fc5
RHEL5      mysql-5.0.22-2.1
RHEL4      mysql-4.1.20-2.RHEL4.1
