Fedora 27 : perl-Dancer2 (2018-59eb033684)

High Nessus Plugin ID 109707


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Dancer2 0.206000 addresses several potential security issues.

There is a potential RCE with regards to Storable. Dancer2 adds session ID validation to the session engine so that session backends based on Storable can reject malformed session IDs that may lead to exploitation of the RCE.

Parsing requests now uses HTTP::Entity::Parser which reduces the amount of code needed and does not require re-parsing the request body.

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.


Update the affected perl-Dancer2 package.
