    Package        : ePerl
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Type           : local and remote root exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Fumitoshi Ukai and Denis Barbier have found several potential buffer
    overflow bugs in our version of ePerl as distributed in all of our
    distributions.
    
    When eperl is installed setuid root, it can switch to the UID/GID of
    the scripts owner.  Although Debian doesn't ship the program setuid
    root, this is a useful feature which people may have activated
    locally.  When the program is used as /usr/lib/cgi-bin/nph-eperl the
    bugs could lead into a remote vulnerability as well.
    
    Version 2.2.14-0.7potato2 fixes this.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your eperl package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
