Kevin Finisterre discovered bugs in perl's I/O debug support :
- The environmental variable PERLIO_DEBUG is honored even by the
set-user-ID perl command (usually named sperl or suidperl). As a
result, a local attacker may be able to gain elevated privileges.
- A buffer overflow may occur in threaded versions of perl when the
full pathname of the script being executed is very long.
Note: By default, no set-user-ID perl binary is installed. An
administrator must enable it manually at build time with the
ENABLE_SUIDPERL port flag.
