Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:225: perl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the perl package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:225 (perl).



Jack Louis discovered a new way to exploit format string errors in the Perl
programming language that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The
updated packages are patched to close the particular exploit vector in Perl
itself, to mitigate the risk of format string programming errors, however it
does not fix problems that may exist in particular pieces of software written
in Perl.
