Package : libcgi-pm-perl Vulnerability : HTTP header injection Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-5526 Debian Bug : 693421

It was discovered that the CGI module for Perl does not filter LF characters in the Set-Cookie and P3P headers, potentially allowing attackers to inject HTTP headers.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcgi-pm-perl packages.
