Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Javier Fernï¿½ez-Sanguino Peï¿½rom the Debian Security Audit Project
discovered that the module DBI::ProxyServer in Perl's DBI library
created a PID file in an insecure manner. This could allow a symbolic
link attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges
of the user invoking a program using this module (like 'dbiproxy').
Now the module does not create a such a PID file by default.
Update the affected libdbi-perl package.
