Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : perl-HTTP-Body (MDVSA-2013:282)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71091


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


Updated perl-HTTP-Body package fixes security vulnerability :

Jonathan Dolle reported a design error in HTTP::Body, a Perl module for processing data from HTTP POST requests. The HTTP body multipart parser creates temporary files which preserve the suffix of the uploaded file. An attacker able to upload files to a service that uses HTTP::Body::Multipart could potentially execute commands on the server if these temporary filenames are used in subsequent commands without further checks (CVE-2013-4407).


Update the affected perl-HTTP-Body package.
