CVE ID : CVE-2012-5195 CVE-2012-5526
Debian Bug : 689314 693420 695223

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the implementation of the Perl
programming language:

CVE-2012-5195
The "x" operator could cause the Perl interpreter to crash
if very long strings were created.

CVE-2012-5526
The CGI module does not properly escape LF characters
in the Set-Cookie and P3P headers.

In addition, this update adds a warning to the Storable documentation
that this package is not suitable for deserializing untrusted data.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.10.1-17squeeze4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.14.2-16.

We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.
