Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2012-05-21 16:21:49 EDT
According to upstream security advisory, this issue affected MySQL 5.5.x, earlier 5.1.x versions are not listed as affected.  Closing this, as MySQL 5.5.x is not included in any Red Hat Enterprise Linux version yet.
Comment 2 Angelo Alvarez 2014-08-01 21:16:11 EDT
Our Retina scans flag RHEL 5.10 MySQL 5.5 as vulnerable to this CVE.  When I look at the CVEs in the changelog for mysql55-mysql-server-5.5.37-1.el5, there are none listed for this CVE.  Is this CVE is patched in mysql55-mysql-server-5.5.37-1.el5?
