4a99d61c-f23a-11dd-9f55-0030843d3802perl -- Directory Permissions Race Condition

Secunia reports:

Paul Szabo has reported a vulnerability in Perl File::Path::rmtree, which potentially can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.

The vulnerability is caused due to a race condition in the way File::Path::rmtree handles directory permissions when cleaning up directories. This can be exploited by replacing an existing sub directory in the directory tree with a symbolic link to an arbitrary file.

Successful exploitation may allow changing permissions of arbitrary files, if root uses an application using the vulnerable code to delete files in a directory having a world-writable sub directory.

5b47c279-8cb5-11dc-8878-0016179b2dd5perl -- regular expressions unicode data buffer overflow

Red Hat reports:

A flaw was found in Perl's regular expression engine. Specially crafted input to a regular expression can cause Perl to improperly allocate memory, possibly resulting in arbitrary code running with the permissions of the user running Perl.

bb33981a-7ac6-11da-bf72-00123f589060perl, webmin, usermin -- perl format string integer wrap vulnerability

The Perl Development page reports:

Dyad Security recently released a security advisory explaining how in certain cases, a carefully crafted format string passed to sprintf can cause a buffer overflow. This buffer overflow can then be used by an attacker to execute code on the machine. This was discovered in the context of a design problem with the Webmin administration package that allowed a malicious user to pass unchecked data into sprintf.
