Synopsis

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

Description

The remote SUSE Linux SLES11 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the SUSE-SU-2020:14510-1 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.632 for Perl. Using many arguments to methods for Callbacks may lead to memory corruption. (CVE-2013-7490)

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.628 for Perl. Stack corruption occurs when a user- defined function requires a non-trivial amount of memory and the Perl stack gets reallocated.
(CVE-2013-7491)

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.643 for Perl. The hv_fetch() documentation requires checking for NULL and the code does that. But, shortly thereafter, it calls SvOK(profile), causing a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2019-20919)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected perl-DBI package.
