Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-19 16:18:00 EST
*** This bug has been split off bug 145577 *** ------- Original comment by Josh Bressers (Security Response Team) on 2005.01.19 16:14 ------- Javier FernÃ¡ndez-Sanguino PeÃ±a from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library, the Perl5 database interface, creates a tmporary file in an insecure manner. This can be exploited by a malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files owned by the person executing the program. This will be disclosed on Tuesday the 25th. attachment 109991 [details] contains the proposed patch for this issue.

This issue should also affect FC2.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-04-02 19:45:18 EST
Would you prefer we only patch FC2 and FC3, or upgrade version?
Comment 5 Josh Bressers 2005-04-02 19:57:14 EST
It's your call Warren. Whatever is easiest for you.
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2005-04-02 20:02:12 EST
I'm asking Ville, he's the upstream perl expert. =)
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2005-04-03 07:41:10 EDT
http://search.cpan.org/dist/DBI/Changes Upgrading would mean upgrading at least to 1.47, and the changelog between 1.40 and that is pretty long. I haven't examined the nature of the changes in detail, but I tend to think just applying the security fix would be safer for FC.
Comment 8 Warren Togami 2005-04-03 07:43:08 EDT
OK will do. Thanks for the analysis.
Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2005-09-06 01:35:59 EDT
From User-Agent: XML-RPC perl-DBI-1.40-6.fc3 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
