 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:008

 Package : perl
 Date    : January 18, 2012
 Affected: 2010.1, 2011.

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in perl:
 Off-by-one error in the decode_xs function in Unicode/Unicode.xs
 in the Encode module before 2.44, as used in Perl before 5.15.6,
 might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
 (memory corruption) via a crafted Unicode string, which triggers a
 heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2011-2939).
 Eval injection in the Digest module before 1.17 for Perl allows
 context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary commands via the
 new constructor (CVE-2011-3597).
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
