    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2575
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in mysql-connector-java, a Java database
    (JDBC) driver for MySQL, which may result in unauthorized update, insert
    or delete access to some MySQL Connectors accessible data as well as
    read access to a subset of MySQL Connectors accessible data. The
    vulnerability was addressed by upgrading mysql-connector-java to the new
    upstream version 5.1.39, which includes additional changes, such as bug
    fixes, new features, and possibly incompatible changes. Please see the
    MySQL Connector/J Release Notes and Oracle's Critical Patch Update
    advisory for further details:

     http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpuapr2015-2365600.html#AppendixMSQL
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.1.39-1~deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-connector-java packages.
