Debian DLA-1566-1 : mysql-5.5 security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118734

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several issues have been discovered in the MySQL database server. The
vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading MySQL to the new upstream
version 5.5.62, which includes additional changes. Please see the
MySQL 5.5 Release Notes and Oracle's Critical Patch Update advisory
for further details :

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version
5.5.62-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-5.5 packages.
