<p>libwww is a collection of Perl modules providing a consistent interface
to the World-Wide Web.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libwww-perl. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to download a specially-crafted
file with an application linked against libwww-perl, which could result
in overwritten files or arbitrary code execution by writing to a dotfile
in the user’s home directory (such as .bashrc). Additionally, a remote
attacker could perform a Man-in-the-Middle attack.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All libwww-perl users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-perl/libwww-perl-6.30.0"
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since December 18, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
