Unspecified vulnerability in the MyISAM subcomponent of the Oracle MySQL server could allow authenticated database users to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash of the MySQL server via multiple protocols.
Upstream announced, supported MySQL server versions, vulnerable to this flaw:
5.1.60 and earlier and 5.5.19 and earlier
According to upstream advisory, this issue was fixed in version 5.1.61. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 mysql packages were previously updated to 5.1.61 via RHSA-2012:0105:
On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.10, new MySQL 5.5 packages are available which are not vulnerable to this issue. Future updates for MySQL 5.0 will no longer be made available (mysql-5.0.* and related packages); security advisories will be provided only for MySQL 5.5.
