<p>Perl is Larry Wall’s Practical Extraction and Report Language.</p>
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Perl. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker could cause a Denial of Service condition or perform
symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the
user running the application. A context-dependent attacker could cause a
Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Perl users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-lang/perl-5.12.3-r1"
