If you look underneath the affected software list it says SQL Server 2000,2005,2008,2008 R2. Under non-affected it lists SQL Server 2012.

So unless you are running SQL Server 2012, then yes it does affect SQL Server. You will have to more into the specifics on how it affects each to see if that is applicable to you. Although its better to actually test this in a non production environment first.
