While analyzing the issue, it turns out that the issue is actually in XSLoader, which uses caller() information to locate the .so file to load. This can be incorrect if XSLoader::load() is called in a string eval. The fix commited upstream is . @MITRE: Could you please assign a CVE for this issue in XSLoader? Do you think List::MoreUtils needs a separate CVE as well, despite the underlying issue lying in XSLoader?
