Package: mysql-server-5.5
Version: 5.5.47-0+deb8u1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

the version of MySQL currently packaged in Debian oldstable and stable (5.5.47)
is affected by a known data corruption bug [1] when stored procedures use SELECT
... INTO ... with a variable of type TEXT or BLOB. This was fixed upstream in
version 5.5.48 released on 2016-02-05.

Best regards, Adam.
