Text of the Oracle flaw description:

  Vulnerability in the MySQL Server component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent:
  Server). Supported versions that are affected are 5.5.25 and earlier.
  Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows successful authenticated network
  attacks via multiple protocols. Successful attack of this vulnerability can
  result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash
  (complete DOS) of MySQL Server. 


Upstream notes this issue only affected MySQL versions 5.5.  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 include MySQL versions 5.0.x and 5.1.x respectively, which are not listed as affected.  Current Fedora versions are already updated to fixed upstream version.  Closing.
