    Debian Bug     : 631529
    
    It was discovered that Perl's Safe module - a module to compile and 
    execute code in restricted compartments - could by bypassed.
    
    Please note that this update is known to break Petal, an XML-based 
    templating engine (shipped with Debian 6.0/Squeeze in the package
    libpetal-perl, see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=582805
    for details). A fix is not yet available. If you use Petal, you might
    consider to put the previous Perl packages on hold.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.10.0-19lenny5.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.10.1-17squeeze2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.12.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.
