Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-1145
2005-12-14
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : perl
Version : 5.8.5
Release : 22.FC3
Summary : The Perl programming language.
Description :
Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, sed, awk
and shell scripting. Perl is good at handling processes and files,
and is especially good at handling text. Perl's hallmarks are
practicality and efficiency. While it is used to do a lot of
different things, Perl's most common applications are system
administration utilities and web programming. A large proportion of
the CGI scripts on the web are written in Perl. You need the perl
package installed on your system so that your system can handle Perl
scripts.

Install this package if you want to program in Perl or enable your
system to handle Perl scripts.

Update Information:

o Updated upstream fix for sprintf integer overflow
vulnerabilities CVE-2005-3962 and CVE-2005-3912,

o Updated fix fo bug 136009 / MakeMaker LD_RUN_PATH issue:

MakeMaker generated LD_RUN_PATH setting from the link
