In addition to 64884 / CVE-2012-2122 reported by Sergei, 5.1.63 release
notes also mention additional security fix:

 * Security Fix: Bug #59387 was fixed.

which can be tracked to the following commit:

This allows non-admin mysql user to crash mysqld.  The fix is also in
5.5.24, but it is not mentioned in 5.5.24 releases notes or changelog
file included in the sources.  5.0.x is affected too.  Can the CVE be
assigned?  I'm CCing Oracle security team explicitly, so they can reply

Additionally, 5.5.23 changes include another security fix:

 * Security Fix: Bug #59533 was fixed.

free to comment there.
