Debian: New version of ePerl packages available

When eperl is installed setuid root, it can switch to the UID/GID of the scripts owner. Although Debian doesn't ship the program setuid root, this is a useful feature which people may have activated locally. When the program is used as /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nph-eperl the bugs could lead into a remote vulnerability as well. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Package        : ePerl
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Type           : local and remote root exploit
Debian-specific: no

Fumitoshi Ukai and Denis Barbier have found several potential buffer
overflow bugs in our version of ePerl as distributed in all of our
distributions.  

When eperl is installed setuid root, it can switch to the UID/GID of
the scripts owner.  Although Debian doesn't ship the program setuid
root, this is a useful feature which people may have activated
locally.  When the program is used as /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nph-eperl the
bugs could lead into a remote vulnerability as well.

Version 2.2.14-0.7potato2 fixes this.

We recommend you upgrade your eperl package immediately.

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
