    Package        : libdbi-perl
    Version        : 1.636-1+deb9u1
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-20919 CVE-2020-14392 CVE-2020-14393
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Perl5 Database
    Interface (DBI). An attacker could trigger a denial-of-service (DoS)
    and possibly execute arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2019-20919
    
        The hv_fetch() documentation requires checking for NULL and the
        code does that. But, shortly thereafter, it calls SvOK(profile),
        causing a NULL pointer dereference.
    
    CVE-2020-14392
    
        An untrusted pointer dereference flaw was found in Perl-DBI. A
        local attacker who is able to manipulate calls to
        dbd_db_login6_sv() could cause memory corruption, affecting the
        service's availability.
    
    CVE-2020-14393
    
        A buffer overflow on via an overlong DBD class name in
        dbih_setup_handle function may lead to data be written past the
        intended limit.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
    1.636-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libdbi-perl packages.
