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.
