FreeBSD : p5-libwww -- possibility to remote servers to create file with a .(dot) character (3a7c5fc4-b50c-11df-977b-ecc31dd8ad06)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49062
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Descriptionlwp-download in libwww-perl before 5.835 does not reject downloads to filenames that begin with a `.' (dot) character, which allows remote servers to create or overwrite files via a 3xx redirect to a URL with a crafted filename or a Content-Disposition header that suggests a crafted filename, and possibly execute arbitrary code as a consequence of writing to a dotfile in a home directory.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
