(Bug #54678) Security Fix: The server crashed for assignment of values of types other than Geometry to items of type GeometryCollection (MultiPoint, MultiCurve, MultiSurface). Now the server checks the field type and fails with bad geometry value if it detects incorrect parameters. (Bug #55531) Security Fix: EXPLAIN EXTENDED caused a server crash with some prepared statements. (Bug #54494) Security Fix: In prepared-statement mode, EXPLAIN for a SELECT from a derived table caused a server crash. (Bug #54488) There are a whole bunch of other crash-type bugs corrected in 5.1.52 that upstream did not explicitly flag as security, which might be considered security-relevant as well: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-52.html -- Vincent Danen / Red Hat Security Response Team
