 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2015:136
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : perl
 Date    : March 29, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 2.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated perl package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, as used in Perl 5.20.1
 and earlier, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
 service (stack consumption and crash) via an Array-Reference with many
 nested Array-References, which triggers a large number of recursive
 calls to the DD_dump function (CVE-2014-4330).
 
 Also, the Text::Wrap version provided in perl contains a bug that can
 lead to a code path that shouldn't be hit. This can lead to crashes
 in other software, such as Bugzilla.
 
 The Text::Wrap module bundled with Perl has been patched and the
 Data::Dumper module bundled with Perl has been updated to fix these
 issues.
