Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-03-24 10:31:31 UTC
  Safe.pm 2.24 and earlier, when used in Perl 5.10.0 and earlier, may allow
attackers to break out of safe compartment in (1) Safe::reval or (2) Safe::rdo 
using implicitly called methods (such as DESTROY or AUTOLOAD) on implicitly 
blessed Perl objects, returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. These 
methods could have been executed unrestricted by Safe, when such objects were 
accessed or destroyed.
  If a victim was tricked into running a specially-crafted Perl script, using 
Safe extension module, it could lead to intended Safe module restriction bypass.
  Different vulnerability than CVE-2010-1447.  

Solution: Upgrade to Safe.pm v2.25 or higher.
