New perl packages fix several vulnerabilities.
Posted on: 12/30/2004 05:47 PM

New perl packages are available for Debian GNU/Linux
_______________________________________________________________________
Package : perl
Vulnerability : insecure temporary files / directories
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0452 CAN-2004-0976
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Perl, the popular scripting language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CAN-2004-0452

Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered that the rmtree() function in the File::Path module removes directory trees in an insecure manner which could lead to the removal of arbitrary files and directories through a symlink attack.

CAN-2004-0976

Trustix developers discovered several insecure uses of temporary files in many modules which allow a local attacker to overwrite files via a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 5.6.1-8.8.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 5.8.4-5.

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.
