Title:Debian LTS: Security Advisory for libdbi-perl (DLA-2386-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'libdbi-perl'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2386-1 advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'libdbi-perl'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2386-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Perl5 Database
Interface (DBI). An attacker could trigger a denial-of-service (DoS)
and possibly execute arbitrary code.


The hv_fetch() documentation requires checking for NULL and the
code does that. But, shortly thereafter, it calls SvOK(profile),
causing a NULL pointer dereference.


An untrusted pointer dereference flaw was found in Perl-DBI. A
local attacker who is able to manipulate calls to
dbd_db_login6_sv() could cause memory corruption, affecting the
service's availability.


A buffer overflow on via an overlong DBD class name in
dbih_setup_handle function may lead to data be written past the
intended limit.

Affected Software/OS:
'libdbi-perl' package(s) on Debian Linux.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your libdbi-perl packages.
