@Tomas Hoger -
The CVE lists this vulnerability as applicable to versions of MySQL Server 5.5.23 "and earlier"
Are you certain the versions 5.1.x and 5.0.x (in our case) are not vulnerable?
Those issues that affected 5.1 are listed in upstream advisory (linked form comment #0) as "5.1.x and earlier, 5.5.y and earlier" affected.
