Debian Security Advisory DSA-1678-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer
December 21, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : perl
Vulnerability : design flaws
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-5302 CVE-2008-5303
Debian Bug : 286905 286922 479317

The perl update in DSA-1678-1 contains a regression which is triggered
by some Perl scripts which have changed into the directory tree
removed by File::Path::rmtree. In particular, this happens if
File::Temp::tempdir is used. This new update corrects this
regression.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.8.8-7etch6.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
