Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.63059
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1678-2 (perl)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1678-2 (perl)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to perl
announced via advisory DSA 1678-2.

The perl update in DSA-1678-1 contains a regression which is triggered
by some Perl scripts which have changed into the directory tree
removed by File::Path::rmtree. In particular, this happens if
File::Temp::tempdir is used. This new update corrects this
regression.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.8.8-7etch6.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.
