Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA034] DSA-034-1 ePerl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-034-1 ePerl

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Fumitoshi Ukai and Denis Barbier have found several
potential buffer overflow bugs in our version of ePerl as distributed in all of
our distributions.

When eperl is installed setuid root, it can switch to the UID/GID of
the scripts owner. Although Debian doesn't ship the program setuid
root, this is a useful feature which people may have activated
locally. When the program is used as /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nph-eperl the
bugs could lead into a remote vulnerability as well.

Version 2.2.14-0.7potato2 fixes this
we recommend you upgrade your eperl
package immediately.
