fixed :

  - CVE-2017-12837: Heap-based buffer overflow in the
    S_regatom function in regcomp.c in Perl 5 before
    5.24.3-RC1 and 5.26.x before 5.26.1-RC1 allows remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds
    write) via a regular expression with a '\N{}' escape and
    the case-insensitive modifier. (bnc#1057724)

  - CVE-2017-12883: Buffer overflow in the S_grok_bslash_N
    function in regcomp.c in Perl 5 before 5.24.3-RC1 and
    5.26.x before 5.26.1-RC1 allows remote attackers to
    disclose sensitive information or cause a denial of
    service (application crash) via a crafted regular
    expression with an invalid '\N{U+...}' escape.
    (bnc#1057721)

  - CVE-2017-6512: Race condition in the rmtree and
    remove_tree functions in the File-Path module before
    2.13 for Perl allows attackers to set the mode on
    arbitrary files via vectors involving
    directory-permission loosening logic. (bnc#1047178) Bug
    fixes :

  - backport set_capture_string changes from upstream
    (bsc#999735)

  - reformat baselibs.conf as source validator workaround

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