Updated perl-Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 01 Dec 2017
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 5 , 6
CVE: CVE-2017-16248

Description

The Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple module before 0.34 for Perl allows
remote attackers to read arbitrary files if there is a '.' character
anywhere in the pathname, which differs from the intended policy of
allowing access only when the filename itself has a '.' character
(CVE-2017-16248).
