USN44-1 : 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
- perl-suid


Description :

A race condition and possible information leak has been discovered in
Perl's File::Path::rmtree(). This function changes the permission of
files and directories before removing them to avoid problems with
wrong permissions. However, they were made readable and writable not
only for the owner, but for the entire world, which opened a race
condition and a possible information leak (if the actual removal of a
file/directory failed for some reason).

Solution :

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