                       VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

VULNERABILITY: Security vulnerabilities in Perl for AIX

| PLATFORMS: 5.3, 6.1 and 7.1

SOLUTION: Apply the fix as described below.

THREAT: See below.

CVE Number: CVE-2012-5526 CVE-2013-1667

Reboot required? NO Workarounds? NO Protected by FPM? NO Protected by SED? NO =============================================================================== DETAILED INFORMATION

I. DESCRIPTION

CVE-2012-5526
-------------
Perl does not properly escape newlines in (1) Set-Cookie or (2) P3P 
headers, which might allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary headers 
into responses from applications that use CGI.pm

CVE-2013-1667
-------------
The rehash mechanism in Perl 5.8.2 through 5.16.x allows 
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory 
consumption and crash) via a crafted hash key.

II. CVSS

| CVE-2012-5526 | CVSS Base Score: 4.3 | CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/80098 for | the current score | CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined | CVSS String: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

| CVE-2013-1667 | CVSS Base Score: 4.3 | CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/82598 for the | current score | CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined | CVSS String:(AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

III. PLATFORM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

To determine if your system is vulnerable, run the following
command:

# lslpp -l perl.rte

The following fileset levels are vulnerable:

AIX Fileset        AIX Level       Lower Level       Upper Level
----------------------------------------------------------------

| perl.rte 5.3.12 5.8.8.0 5.8.8.123 perl.rte 6.1.7 5.8.8.0 5.8.8.122 perl.rte 6.1.8 5.8.8.0 5.8.8.244 perl.rte 7.1.1 5.10.1.0 5.10.1.100 perl.rte 7.1.2 5.10.1.0 5.10.1.150
