CGI.pm Version 3.15 Contains Broken File Upload Method
Last modified: 2008-03-26 13:12:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Just prior to CGI 3.15, a bug was introduced into the upload() method (which
captures file handles for uploading files to Apache) so that it loses the
filehandle intermittently, causing uploads to work only every-so-often. Since
v3.15, there have been multiple patches to CGI fixing the upload().
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The problem is in CGI 3.15.
I don't know if it will help you to give you step here. However, a link to the
CGI change log documents the problems with this:
CGI 3.33 fixes this problem. Since CGI is packaged into the perl package, it is
easier if the update comes through an update.
Thank you for report. I found one liner patch, which makes sense. It will be
fixed in next update.
Has this been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository?
Hups, I forgot push the fix into F-8. It will be fixed in next update.
perl-5.8.8-38.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
perl-5.8.8-38.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
