    Several issues have been discovered in the MySQL database server. The
    vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading MySQL to the new upstream
    version 5.5.53, which includes additional changes, such as performance
    improvements, bug fixes, new features, and possibly incompatible
    changes. Please see the MySQL 5.5 Release Notes and Oracle's Critical
    Patch Update advisory for further details:

     http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/security-advisory/cpuoct2016-2881722.html
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.5.53-0+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-5.5 packages.
