Nope. There *was* a still-vulnerable version online for a *very* short 
time frame, but it was corrected before any announcements were made.

The WP 1.5.2 archive currently available (which has been up since before 
the official announcement was made on the dev blog) does *not* contain 
the vulnerability.
