Description Murray McAllister 2013-10-14 08:42:33 EDT
The MP3::Info module attempts to load and run a module relative to the current working directory. If a local user ran an application that uses MP3::Info in an attacker-controlled directory, it would lead to arbitrary code execution.
Comment 4 Kurt Seifried 2015-02-04 21:27:55 EST
Downgrading severity, this module is not widely used and requires significant attacker/victim interaction.
Comment 5 Kurt Seifried 2015-02-04 21:28:19 EST
Created perl-MP3-Info tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1189334]
Affects: epel-5 [bug 1189335]
Comment 6 Petr Šabata 2015-02-11 10:06:28 EST
I checked the code of perl-MP3-Info and couldn't find any code doing what you describe.  There are no issues of such nature reported upstream either.

I would appreciate some more information on this matter as I can't see anything to fix here.
Comment 7 Petr Šabata 2015-05-14 07:31:21 EDT
I believe this report is bogus.  Closing.
