Subject: CVE request: MySQL empty bit-string literal server crash


we consider the following bug a security issue. I'm not sure whether 
MySQL upstream feels so as well. Quoting the ChangeLog:

  An empty bit-string literal (b'') caused a server crash. Now the value  
  is parsed as an empty bit value (which is treated as an empty string
  in string context or 0 in numeric context). (Bug#35658)


* 5.0.66
* 5.1.26
* 6.0.6

Gentoo handles this as bug 237166 [ ].
