Is this bug actually public? CVE-2012-5511 is but I haven't seen any public references to CVE-2012-6333 yet.

Is public via: http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2012/12/03/10 (CVE-2012-6333 has been assigned by Mitre as 'an addition' to CVE-2012-5511 to the other vector not covered within CVE-2012-5511).
IOW feel free to reference it publicly.
