    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0477
    
    Bastian Blank reported a denial of service vulnerability in
    Email::Address, a Perl module for RFC 2822 address parsing and creation.
    Email::Address::parse used significant time on parsing empty quoted
    strings. A remote attacker able to supply specifically crafted input to
    an application using Email::Address for parsing, could use this flaw to
    mount a denial of service attack against the application.
