    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library, the Perl5 database interface, creates a tmporary PID file in an insecure manner. This can be exploited by a malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files owned by the person executing the parts of the library.

    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Project
    discovered that the DBI library, the Perl5 database interface, creates
    a tmporary PID file in an insecure manner.  This can be exploited by a
    malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files owned by the person
    executing the parts of the library.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.21-2woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.46-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libdbi-perl package.
