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.

68c1f75b-8824-11e2-9996-c48508086173perl -- denial of service via algorithmic complexity attack on hashing routines

Perl developers report:

In order to prevent an algorithmic complexity attack against its hashing mechanism, perl will sometimes recalculate keys and redistribute the contents of a hash. This mechanism has made perl robust against attacks that have been demonstrated against other systems.

Research by Yves Orton has recently uncovered a flaw in the rehashing code which can result in pathological behavior. This flaw could be exploited to carry out a denial of service attack against code that uses arbitrary user input as hash keys.

Because using user-provided strings as hash keys is a very common operation, we urge users of perl to update their perl executable as soon as possible.
