Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2916-1
Posted Mar 3, 2016
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2916-1 - It was discovered that Perl incorrectly handled certain regular expressions with an invalid backreference. An attacker could use this issue to cause Perl to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. Markus Vervier discovered that Perl incorrectly handled nesting in the Data::Dumper module. An attacker could use this issue to cause Perl to consume memory and crash, resulting in a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Debian Security Advisory 3501-1
Posted Mar 2, 2016
Authored by Debian | Site debian.org

Debian Linux Security Advisory 3501-1 - Stephane Chazelas discovered a bug in the environment handling in Perl. Perl provides a Perl-space hash variable, %ENV, in which environment variables can be looked up. If a variable appears twice in envp, only the last value would appear in %ENV, but getenv would return the first. Perl's taint security mechanism would be applied to the value in %ENV, but not to the other rest of the environment. This could result in an ambiguous environment causing environment variables to be propagated to subprocesses, despite the protections supposedly offered by taint checking.
