Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:225
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : perl
Date : December 8, 2005
Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 2.1, Corporate 3.0,
Multi Network Firewall 2.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

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.
