3. Problem description:

DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for
the Perl programming language. 

The Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library creates a
temporary PID file in an insecure manner.  A local user could overwrite or
create files as a different user who happens to run an application which
uses DBI::ProxyServer.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0077 to this issue. 

Users should update to this erratum package which disables the temporary
PID file unless configured.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date
