Subject: Re: CVE id request: perl

This looks distinct from some older rmtree() issues, so I'm assigning a
new number.

Name: CVE-2008-2827
Status: Candidate
Reference: MISC:
Reference: MISC:

The rmtree function in lib/File/ in Perl 5.10 does not properly
check permissions before performing a chmod, which allows local users
to modify the permissions of arbitrary files via a symlink attack, a
different vulnerability than CVE-2005-0448 and CVE-2004-0452.
