Assigned: 20120316
Reference: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpujul2012-392727.html

Unspecified vulnerability in Oracle MySQL Server 5.5.23 and earlier
allows remote authenticated users to affect availability via unknown
vectors related to InnoDB.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2012-07-20 09:28:18 UTC
According to upstream security page, this issue only affected MySQL 5.5.x versions and did not affect 5.1.x versions.  MySQL versions shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux are older than 5.5 (5.0.x in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 5.1.x in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6).  MySQL packages in Fedora are already updated to fixed upstream version (all supported Fedora versions currently have 5.5.25a).

Upstream has not provided any further details about this flaw.

Comment 3 Clifton Bryan 2012-08-09 15:26:36 UTC
@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? 


Comment 4 Tomas Hoger 2012-08-10 08:44:20 UTC
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.
