Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56271
Category:FreeBSD Local Security Checks
Title:FreeBSD Ports: perl
Summary:FreeBSD Ports: perl
Description:The remote host is missing an update to the system
as announced in the referenced advisory.

The following packages are affected:
perl
webmin
usermin

CVE-2005-3912
Format string vulnerability in miniserv.pl Perl web server in Webmin
before 1.250 and Usermin before 1.180, with syslog logging enabled,
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or memory
consumption) and possibly execute arbitrary code via format string
specifiers in the username parameter to the login form, which is
ultimately used in a syslog call. NOTE: the code execution might be
associated with an issue in Perl.

CVE-2005-3962
Integer overflow in the format string functionality (Perl_sv_vcatpvfn)
in Perl 5.9.2 and 5.8.6 Perl allows attackers to overwrite arbitrary
memory and possibly execute arbitrary code via format string
specifiers with large values, which causes an integer wrap and leads
to a buffer overflow, as demonstrated using format string
vulnerabilities in Perl applications.

Solution:
Update your system with the appropriate patches or
software upgrades.
