Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59972
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-552-1 (perl)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-552-1 (perl)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to perl
announced via advisory USN-552-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

It was discovered that Perl's regular expression library did not correctly
handle certain UTF sequences. If a user or automated system were tricked
into running a specially crafted regular expression, a remote attacker
could crash the application or possibly execute arbitrary code with
user privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libperl5.8 5.8.7-10ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
libperl5.8 5.8.8-6ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
libperl5.8 5.8.8-7ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
libperl5.8 5.8.8-7ubuntu3.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
