Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-069: perl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the perl packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated perl-DBI package that fixes a temporary file flaw in
DBI::ProxyServer is now available.

DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for
the Perl programming language.

The Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library creates a
temporary PID file in an insecure manner. A local user could overwrite or
create files as a different user who happens to run an application which
uses DBI::ProxyServer. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0077 to this issue.

Users should update to this erratum package which disables the temporary
PID file unless configured.
