Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:192 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/


Package : perl-Email-Address Date : October 1, 2014 Affected: Business Server 1.0


Problem Description:

Updated perl-Email-Address package fixes security vulnerability:

The parse function in Email::Address module before 1.905 for Perl uses an inefficient regular expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via an empty quoted string in an RFC 2822 address (CVE-2014-0477).

The Email::Address module before 1.904 for Perl uses an inefficient regular expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via vectors related to backtracking into the phrase (CVE-2014-4720).
