The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
Several potential buffer overflows in the ePerl package have been
found by Fumitoshi Ukai and Denis Barbier. When eperl is installed
setuid root, it can switch to the UID/GID of the script's owner.
Although Linux-Mandrake does not ship the program setuid root, this is
a useful feature which some users may have activated locally on their
own. There is also the potential for a remote vulnerability as well.
Update the affected eperl package.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
