Description

Updated perl and perl-Data-Dumper packages fixes security vulnerability :

The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, 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).

The Data::Dumper module bundled with perl and the perl-Data-Dumper packages has been updated to fix this issue.
