Hi David and all,
You are right.
Bug 2576249 (DAV_PUBLIC) was discovered by the Litchfield brothers and is already fixed with Alert 52.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am not aware that the other bugs (Memory leak, webcache SSL 40bit encryption, oraaltpassword ...) are already covered by another Oracle security alert.

I don't think this one was silently fixed - see
