    Package        : perl
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files / directories
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0452 CAN-2004-0976
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Perl, the popular
    scripting language.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
        Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered that the rmtree() function in the
        File::Path module removes directory trees in an insecure manner
        which could lead to the removal of arbitrary files and directories
        through a symlink attack.
        Trustix developers discovered several insecure uses of temporary
        files in many modules which allow a local attacker to overwrite
        files via a symlink attack.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.6.1-8.8.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.8.4-5.
    We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.
    Upgrade Instructions
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
