Synopsis: Low: perl-DBI security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:072-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-072.html

Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0077
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

An updated perl-DBI package that fixes a temporary file flaw in DBI::ProxyServer is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for the Perl programming language.

The Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library creates a temporary PID file in an insecure manner. A local user could overwrite or create files as a different user who happens to run an application which uses DBI::ProxyServer. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0077 to this issue.

Users should update to this erratum package which disables the temporary PID file unless configured.

4. Solution:
