Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security <oss-security@...ts.openwall.com> Subject: CVE Request -- perl -- lc(), uc() routines are laundering tainted data Hello Josh, Steve, vendors, A security flaw was found in the way Perl performed laundering of tainted data. A remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass Perl TAINT mode protection mechanism (leading to commands execution on dirty arguments or file system access via contaminated variables) via specially-crafted input provided to the web application / CGI script. Upstream bug report: http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=87336 Relevant patch: http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commitdiff/539689e74a3bcb04d29e4cd9396de91a81045b99 (contains also information when the issue was introduced) References:  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=692844 Could you allocate a CVE id for this? Thanks && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
