Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : perl (MDVSA-2014:199)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Updated perl and perl-Data-Dumper packages fixes security
vulnerability :

The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (stack
consumption and crash) via an Array-Reference with many nested
Array-References, which triggers a large number of recursive calls to
the DD_dump function (CVE-2014-4330).

The Data::Dumper module bundled with perl and the perl-Data-Dumper
packages has been updated to fix this issue.
