Subject:  [RHSA-2005:105-01] Updated Perl packages fix security issues
Date:  Mon, 7 Feb 2005 11:45 -0500

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 Updated on: 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: up2date For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/ 5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 146737 - CAN-2005-0155 multiple setuid perl issues (CAN-2005-0156) 140227 - Potential insecurity in CGI.pm 6.
