<p>Locale-Maketext - Perl framework for localization</p>
<p>Two vulnerabilities have been reported in the Locale-Maketext module for
Perl, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise an
application using the module.
<p>The vulnerabilities are caused due to the “_compile()” function not
properly sanitising input, which can be exploited to inject and execute
arbitrary Perl 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>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All users of the Locale-Maketext module should upgrade to the latest
