For the most important CVE,
https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2016-0728 this is
right. The issue was introduced in upstream commit
3a50597de8635cd05133bd12c95681c82fe7b878 which is in Kernels v3.8-rc1
onways. Wheezy Kernel is not affected, Wheezy and Jessie backports are
vunerable but beeing fixed.

You can get the full picture for Wheezy and Jessie status by starting
from https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/DSA-3448-1 and
following the CVE references for details. The other issues which
affect Wheezy as well will be fixed for Wheezy in a later DSA.

(yes, the security-tracker does not track backports).

Hope this helps,
