GLSA-201111-09 : Perl Safe module: Arbitrary Perl code injection

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201111-09
(Perl Safe module: Arbitrary Perl code injection)

Unsafe code evaluation prevents the Safe module from properly
restricting the code of implicitly called methods on implicitly blessed
objects.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to load a specially crafted Perl
script, resulting in execution arbitrary Perl code outside of a
restricted compartment.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All users of the standalone Perl Safe module should upgrade to the
latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=perl-core/Safe-2.27'
All users of the Safe module bundled with Perl should upgrade to the
latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=virtual/perl-Safe-2.27'
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since July 18, 2010. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.2
