Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2007-0063-1
Published: 2007-11-09

Rating: Minor

Updated Versions:
    perl=/conary.rpath.com () rpl:devel//1/5.8.7-8.2-1
    group-dist=/foresight.rpath.org () fl:1-devel//1/1.4.1-0.2-2

References:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-5116

Description:
    Previous versions of the perl package contain weaknesses when evaluating
    regular expressions.
    
    If a system is serving a perl-based web application that evaluates
    remote input as a regular expression, an attacker may be be able to
    exploit these weaknesses to execute arbitrary, attacker-provided code on
    the system, potentially elevating this to a remote, deterministic
    unauthorized access vulnerability.
    
    Foresight Linux does not, by default, enable or contain any such services.
