    debian-security-support, the Debian security support coverage checker,
    has been updated in jessie-security.
    
    This marks the end of life of the libqb package in jessie.  A recently
    reported vulnerability against libqb which allows users to overwrite
    arbitrary files via a symlink attack cannot be adequately addressed in
    libqb in jessie.  Upstream no longer supports this version and no
    packages in jessie depend upon libqb.
    
    We recommend that if your systems or applications depend upon the libqb
    package provided from the Debian archive that you upgrade your systems
    to a more recent Debian release or find an alternate and up to date
    source of libqb packages.
    
    Additionally, MySQL 5.5 is no longer supported.  Upstream has ended its
    support and we are unable to backport fixes from newer versions due to
    the lack of patch details. Options are to switch to MariaDB 10.0 in
    jessie or to a newer version of MySQL in more recent Debian releases.

    these updates to your system and frequently asked questions can be
