Notes

- mysql-5.7 <not-affected> (Fixed before the initial release to Debian)
The issue arises because of an improper fix for the issue known under
the name BACKRONYM. The CVE CVE-2015-3152 though is explicitly only
assigned for MariaDB and Percona, thus Oracle MySQL products are not
tracked below that CVE. Later, Oracle tried to address the corresonding
issue as well in 5.5 (in 5.5.49) and 5.6 (5.6.30) series resulting in
opening CVE-2017-3305.
