- 30 Jul 2016
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-9906, CVE-2015-8949.

Two use-after-free vulnerabilities were discovered in DBD::mysql, a Perl DBI driver for the MySQL database server. A remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial-of-service against an application using DBD::mysql (application crash), or potentially to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 4.021-1+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libdbd-mysql-perl packages.
