USN16-1 : perl vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
perl vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libcgi-fast-perl
- libperl-dev
- libperl5.8
- perl
- perl-base
- perl-debug
- perl-doc
- perl-modules

Description :

Recently, Trustix Secure Linux discovered some vulnerabilities in the
perl package. The utility "instmodsh", the Perl package "PPPort.pm",
and several test scripts (which are not shipped and only used during
build) created temporary files in an insecure way, which could permit a
symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
rights of the user invoking the program, or building the perl
package, respectively.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libcgi-fast-perl-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libperl-dev-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libperl5.8-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perl-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perl-base-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perl-debug-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perl-doc-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perl-modules-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perl-suid-5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
