Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 843534.
More information:

In some configurations the MySQL storage backend for Akonadi, an extensible cross-desktop Personal Information Management (PIM) storage service failed to start after applying the MySQL 5.5.53 security upgrade.

This update extends the /etc/akonadi/mysql-global.conf configuration file to restore compatibility (version 1.7.2-3+deb7u1 in Wheezy).

We recommend that you upgrade your akonadi packages.
