Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2002-0087

Package name:      perl
Summary:           Safe compartments not being safe
Date:              2002-12-19
Affected versions: TSL 1.01, 1.1, 1.2, 1.5

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
  Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, sed, awk
  and shell scripting.  Perl is good at handling processes and files,
  and is especially good at handling text.  Perl's hallmarks are
  practicality and efficiency.  While it is used to do a lot of
  different things, Perl's most common applications (and what it excels
  at) are probably system administration utilities and web programming.
  A large proportion of the CGI scripts on the web are written in Perl.


Problem description:
  Perl allows for socalled "safe compartmemts" where code can be
  evalutated without access to variables outside this environment.
  There was, however, a bug with regards to applications using this
  safe compartment more than once.
