===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-16-1           November 02, 2004
perl vulnerabilities
CAN-2004-0976
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

perl

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 5.8.4-2ubuntu0.1.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Recently, Trustix Secure Linux discovered some vulnerabilities in the
perl package. The utility "instmodsh", the Perl package "PPPort.pm",
and several test scripts (which are not shipped and only used during
build) created temporary files in an insecure way, which could allow a
symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
privileges of the user invoking the program, or building the perl
package, respectively.
