Description

CGI::Application suffers from a flaw where, in certain cases, it would unexpectedly dump a complete set of web query data and server environment information as an error page. This could allow unintended disclosure of sensitive information.

This update patches CGI::Application to no longer do so.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
