Bugs Fixed

Percona Server 5.6.44-85.0-1 Debian/Ubuntu packages would reset the root password to an empty string during the upgrade on Debian/Ubuntu. This fixes the CVE-2019-12301 issue. Bug fixed #5640.

As mentioned in the blogpost packages were replaced in the repositories after the issue was discovered. While CentOS/RHEL wasn’t affected by the CVE, some users got the [Errno -1]  Package does not match intended download. message when trying to install the packages once they were replaced.
