    Package        : libdbd-mysql-perl
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1246
    
    Paul Rohar discovered that libdbd-mysql-perl, the Perl DBI database
    driver for MySQL and MariaDB, constructed an error message in a
    fixed-length buffer, leading to a crash (_FORTIFY_SOURCE failure) and,
    potentially, to denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.028-2+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-mysql-perl packages.
