[DSA431] DSA-431-1 perl Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-431-1 perl

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Paul Szabo discovered a number of similar bugs in suidperl, a helper
program to run perl scripts with setuid rights. By exploiting
these bugs, a possible hacker could abuse suidperl to discover information
about files (such as testing for their existence and some of their
permissions) that should not be accessible to unprivileged users.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 5.6.1-8.6.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon. Refer
to Debian bug #220486.
We recommend that you update your perl package if you have the
"perl-suid" package installed.
