<p>The Perl RPC Module is a Perl module that implements IDL-free RPCs.</p>
<p>PlRPC uses Storable module for serialization and deserialization of
untrusted data. Deserialized data can contain objects which can lead to
loading of foreign modules, and possible execution of arbitrary code.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of
Service condition.
<p>External authentication mechanism can be used with PlRPC such as TLS or
