Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : perl-58 (cve_2012_5526_configuration_vulnerability1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- Race condition in the rmtree function in the File::Path
module in Perl 5.6.1 and 5.8.4 sets read/write
permissions for the world, which allows local users to
delete arbitrary files and directories, and possibly
read files and directories, via a symlink attack.

- Buffer overflow in the PerlIO implementation in Perl
5.8.0, when installed with setuid support (sperl),
allows local users to execute arbitrary code by setting
the PERLIO_DEBUG variable and executing a Perl script
whose full pathname contains a long directory tree.

- Race condition in the rmtree function in
in Perl before 5.8.4 allows local users to create
arbitrary setuid binaries in the tree being deleted, a
different vulnerability than CVE-2004-0452.

- Untrusted search path vulnerability in Perl before
5.8.7-r1 on Gentoo Linux allows local users in the
portage group to gain privileges via a malicious shared
object in the Portage temporary build directory, which
is part of the RUNPATH. (CVE-2005-4278)

- Integer overflow in the regular expression engine in
Perl 5.8.x allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (stack consumption and application
crash) by matching a crafted regular expression against
a long string. (CVE-2010-1158)

- Off-by-one error in the decode_xs function in
Unicode/Unicode.xs in the Encode module before 2.44, as
used in Perl before 5.15.6, might allow
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption) via a crafted Unicode string, which
triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. (CVE-2011-2939)

- module before 3.63 for Perl does not properly
escape newlines in (1) Set-Cookie or (2) P3P headers,
which might allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary
headers into responses from applications that use (CVE-2012-5526)
