    Package        : libapache2-mod-perl2
    Debian Bug     : 702821
    
    The security fix applied to the perl package due to CVE-2013-1667
    introduced a test failure in libapache2-mod-perl2 source package
    specific to the rehash mechanism in Perl. See Debian Bug #702821 for
    details. This update fixes that problem. For reference, the original
    advisory text for perl follows.
    
    Yves Orton discovered a flaw in the rehashing code of Perl. This flaw
    could be exploited to carry out a denial of service attack against code
    that uses arbitrary user input as hash keys. Specifically an attacker
    could create a set of keys of a hash causing a denial of service via
    memory exhaustion.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.4-7+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.7-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.7-3.
