Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated Perl packages fix security issues
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:105-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-105.html
Issue date: 2005-02-07

Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0155 CAN-2005-0156
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated Perl packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Perl is a high-level programming language commonly used for system administration utilities and Web programming.

Kevin Finisterre discovered a stack based buffer overflow flaw in sperl, the Perl setuid wrapper. A local user could create a sperl executable script with a carefully created path name, overflowing the buffer and leading to root privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0156 to this issue.

Kevin Finisterre discovered a flaw in sperl which can cause debugging information to be logged to arbitrary files. By setting an environment variable, a local user could cause sperl to create, as root, files with arbitrary filenames, or append the debugging information to existing files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0155 to this issue.

Users of Perl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
