--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Legacy Update Advisory Synopsis: Updated perl-DBI package fixes security issue Advisory ID: FLSA:178989 Issue date: 2006-03-01 Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core Keywords: Bugfix CVE Names: CVE-2005-0077 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Topic: An updated perl-DBI package that fixes a temporary file flaw in DBI::ProxyServer is now available. DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for the Perl programming language. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386 Red Hat Linux 9 - i386 Fedora Core 1 - i386 Fedora Core 2 - i386 3. Problem description: The Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library creates a temporary PID file in an insecure manner. A local user could overwrite or create files as a different user who happens to run an application which uses DBI::ProxyServer. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2005-0077 to this issue. Users should update to this erratum package which disables the temporary PID file unless configured. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run: rpm -Fvh [filenames] where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs. Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue: yum update or to use apt: apt-get update; apt-get upgrade This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get. 5. Bug IDs fixed: 6. RPMs required: Red Hat Linux 7.3: SRPM: i386: Red Hat Linux 9: SRPM: i386: Fedora Core 1: SRPM: i386: Fedora Core 2: SRPM: i386: 7.
