20120910: Oracle security decides, that CVE should be assigned

Can Oracle/halfdog.net communicate the CVE to the community
please?

I do not have that information yet. The information about intended CVE
assignment till October update was exchanged off list, contact on
Oracle side was Mr. Mehnert.

Early disclosure of this issue was due to misconception, that Oracle
would have assessed severity, need for CVE and communication of
disclosure timeline before releasing patch as maintenance release. The
early disclosure mixed up the whole
reporting/analyze/classify/CVE-assign/disclosure process somehow.

The security folks told me that there will be a CVE which will be
visible with the next scheduled Oracle CPU date (in October 2012).

Seems that Oracle CPU day was 2012-10-16, CVE is CVE-2012-3221

I've collected references to this issue from HTTP referers and added
them at the bottom of
