Updated perl packages fix CVE-2014-4330Publication date: 09 Oct 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 4
Updated perl package fixes security vulnerability: The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, as used in Perl 5.20.1 and earlier, 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). Also, the Text::Wrap version provided in perl contains a bug that can lead to a code path that shouldn't be hit. This can lead to crashes in other software, such as Bugzilla. The Text::Wrap module bundled with Perl has been patched and the Data::Dumper module bundled with Perl has been updated to fix these issues.
