-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:136 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : perl Date : March 29, 2015 Affected: Business Server 2.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated perl package fixes security vulnerability: The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, as used in Perl 5.20.1 and earlier, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and crash) via an Array-Reference with many nested Array-References, which triggers a large number of recursive calls to the DD_dump function (CVE-2014-4330). Also, the Text::Wrap version provided in perl contains a bug that can lead to a code path that shouldn't be hit. This can lead to crashes in other software, such as Bugzilla. The Text::Wrap module bundled with Perl has been patched and the Data::Dumper module bundled with Perl has been updated to fix these issues. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-4330 http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2014-0406.html _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 2/X86_64: ad6ebe7e5f8290c6c89508c41d5a85e8 mbs2/x86_64/perl-5.18.1-5.1.mbs2.x86_64.rpm c3d5a28dd7d7d8d361fd39b635f11887 mbs2/x86_64/perl-base-5.18.1-5.1.mbs2.x86_64.rpm 9ac3d8166eda134e3ea3d08ebdec1754 mbs2/x86_64/perl-devel-5.18.1-5.1.mbs2.x86_64.rpm ee9cb33c6d571d0c89c38835ceb292fd mbs2/x86_64/perl-doc-5.18.1-5.1.mbs2.noarch.rpm 9991fca1f7669cf7518928625e3a26de mbs2/SRPMS/perl-5.18.1-5.1.mbs2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
