This may be related to BZ#1877402 per the upstream bug tracker [1] but I see there was a separate patch issued in 1.632 listed in above comment.

perl-DBI as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, rhscl-3 rh-perl526-perl-DBI and rhscl-3 rh-perl530-perl-DBI are notaffected by this flaw as the vulnerable code has already been patched in versions of perl-DBI shipped in these products.
