The Debian Long Term Support (LTS) Team is unable to continue supporting different packages in the extended life cycle of Wheezy LTS. The debian-security-support package provides the check-support-status tool that helps to warn the administrator about installed packages whose security support is limited or has to prematurely end.
debian-security-support version 2016.05.24~deb7u1 updates the list of packages with restricted support in Wheezy LTS, adding the following:
Source Package Last supported version EOL date Additional information libv8 18.104.22.168-2 2016-02-06 https://lists.debian.org/debian-lts/2015/08/msg00035.html mediawiki 1:1.19.20+dfsg-0+deb7u3 2016-04-26 https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/amd64/release-notes/ch-information.html#mediawiki-security sogo 1.3.16-1 2016-05-19 https://lists.debian.org/debian-lts/2016/05/msg00197.html vlc 2.0.3-5+deb7u2 2016-02-06 https://lists.debian.org/debian-lts/2015/11/msg00049.html
If you rely on those packages on a system running Debian 7
Wheezy, we recommend you to upgrade to Debian 8
Jessie, the current stable release. Note however that the mediawiki support has also ended in Jessie.
We recommend you to install the debian-security-support package to verify the support status of the packages installed on the system.

For Debian 6
Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in debian-security-support version 2016.05.24~deb7u1
