Mandrake Updated perl package.
 _______________________________________________________________________

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           perl
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:031
 Date:                   February 8th, 2005

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1, 9.2, Corporate 3.0,
			 Corporate Server 2.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered that the rmtree() function in the perl
 File::Path module would remove directories in an insecure manner which
 could lead to the removal of arbitrary files and directories via a
 symlink attack (CAN-2004-0452).
 
 Trustix developers discovered several insecure uses of temporary files
 in many modules which could allow a local attacker to overwrite files
 via symlink attacks (CAN-2004-0976).
 
 "KF" discovered two vulnerabilities involving setuid-enabled perl
 scripts.  By setting the PERLIO_DEBUG environment variable and calling
 an arbitrary setuid-root perl script, an attacker could overwrite
 arbitrary files with perl debug messages (CAN-2005-0155).  As well,
 calling a setuid-root perl script with a very long path would cause a
 buffer overflow if PERLIO_DEBUG was set, which could be exploited to
 execute arbitrary files with root privileges (CAN-2005-0156).
 
 The provided packages have been patched to resolve these problems.
