    Package        : libdbd-mysql-perl
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9906 CVE-2015-8949
    
    Two use-after-free vulnerabilities were discovered in DBD::mysql, a Perl
    DBI driver for the MySQL database server. A remote attacker can take
    advantage of these flaws to cause a denial-of-service against an
    application using DBD::mysql (application crash), or potentially to
    execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
    application.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.028-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-mysql-perl packages.
