low Nessus Plugin ID 78615
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated perl and perl-Data-Dumper packages fixes security vulnerability :

The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and crash) via an Array-Reference with many nested Array-References, which triggers a large number of recursive calls to the DD_dump function (CVE-2014-4330).

The Data::Dumper module bundled with perl and the perl-Data-Dumper packages has been updated to fix this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
