Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2014-4330

Description

Updated perl-Data-Dumper package 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).
