Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: perl on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Wednesday 27th March 2013 15:22:19 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: perl security update
Issue Date:        2013-03-26
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-5195
                   CVE-2012-5526
                   CVE-2012-6329
                   CVE-2013-1667
--

A heap overflow flaw was found in Perl. If a Perl application allowed user
input to control the count argument of the string repeat operator, an
attacker could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
(CVE-2012-5195)

A denial of service flaw was found in the way Perl's rehashing code
implementation, responsible for recalculation of hash keys and
redistribution of hash content, handled certain input. If an attacker
supplied specially-crafted input to be used as hash keys by a Perl
application, it could cause excessive memory consumption. (CVE-2013-1667)

It was found that the Perl CGI module, used to handle Common Gateway
Interface requests and responses, incorrectly sanitized the values for
Set-Cookie and P3P headers. If a Perl application using the CGI module
reused cookies values and accepted untrusted input from web browsers, a
remote attacker could use this flaw to alter member items of the cookie or
add new items. (CVE-2012-5526)

It was found that the Perl Locale::Maketext module, used to localize Perl
applications, did not properly handle backslashes or fully-qualified
method names. An attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute
arbitrary Perl code with the privileges of a Perl application that uses
untrusted Locale::Maketext templates. (CVE-2012-6329)

All running Perl programs must be restarted for this update to take
effect.
