Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: perl
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:031
Date: February 8th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 9.2, Corporate 3.0,
Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered that the rmtree() function in the perl File::Path module would remove directories in an insecure manner which could lead to the removal of arbitrary files and directories via a symlink attack (CAN-2004-0452).

Trustix developers discovered several insecure uses of temporary files in many modules which could allow a local attacker to overwrite files via symlink attacks (CAN-2004-0976).

"KF" discovered two vulnerabilities involving setuid-enabled perl scripts. By setting the PERLIO_DEBUG environment variable and calling an arbitrary setuid-root perl script, an attacker could overwrite arbitrary files with perl debug messages (CAN-2005-0155). As well, calling a setuid-root perl script with a very long path would cause a buffer overflow if PERLIO_DEBUG was set, which could be exploited to execute arbitrary files with root privileges (CAN-2005-0156).

The provided packages have been patched to resolve these problems.
