MySQL Exploit Evidently Patched

News reports issued yesterday indicated that MariaDB and Percona DB, had already issued patches for the vulnerability, but that Oracle controlled MySQL had not, even though the company had been notified of the vulnerability by Golunski on July 29. However, a report this morning from The Register says that Oracle had “quietly” issued patches on September 6, with links to patched versions 5.5.52, 5.6.33 and 5.7.15.
