Fedora 26 : 1:perl-Module-CoreList / 4:perl (2018-0050f7c0d1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 109350
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This release provides Perl 5.24.4 that fixes a heap buffer overflow in the pack() function and two overflows in the regular expression engine.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected 1:perl-Module-CoreList and / or 4:perl packages.
