Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Perl, Perl Locale-Maketext module: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201410-02)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: October 12, 2014
Updated: December 29, 2014
Bug(s): #446376
ID: 201410-02

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the Perl
Locale-Maketext module, allowing remote attackers to inject and execute
arbitrary Perl code.


Background

Locale-Maketext - Perl framework for localization

Affected Packages

Package: perl-core/Locale-Maketext
Vulnerable: < 1.230.0
Unaffected: >= 1.230.0
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: dev-lang/perl
Vulnerable: < 5.17.7
Unaffected: >= 5.17.7
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Two vulnerabilities have been reported in the Locale-Maketext module for
Perl, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise an
application using the module.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to the “_compile()” function not
properly sanitising input, which can be exploited to inject and execute
arbitrary Perl code.


Impact

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All users of the Locale-Maketext module should upgrade to the latest
version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=perl-core/Locale-Maketext-1.230.0"
