Debian DLA-3035-1 : libdbi-perl - LTS security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 161684

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The remote Debian 9 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-3035 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.632 for Perl. DBD::File drivers can open files from folders other than those specifically passed via the f_dir attribute. (CVE-2014-10401)

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module through 1.643 for Perl. DBD::File drivers can open files from folders other than those specifically passed via the f_dir attribute in the data source name (DSN). NOTE:
this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-10401. (CVE-2014-10402)

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

Solution

Upgrade the libdbi-perl packages.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 1.636-1+deb9u2.
