Buffer overflow in the polymorphic opcode support in the Regular Expression Engine (regcomp.c) in Perl 5.8 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code by switching from byte to Unicode (UTF) characters in a regular expression.
Untrusted search path vulnerability in Perl before 5.8.7-r1 on Gentoo Linux allows local users in the portage group to gain privileges via a malicious shared object in the Portage temporary build directory, which is part of the RUNPATH.
Race condition in the rmtree function in File::Path.pm in Perl before 5.8.4 allows local users to create arbitrary setuid binaries in the tree being deleted, a different vulnerability than CVE-2004-0452.
Buffer overflow in the PerlIO implementation in Perl 5.8.0, when installed with setuid support (sperl), allows local users to execute arbitrary code by setting the PERLIO_DEBUG variable and executing a Perl script whose full pathname contains a long directory tree.
The PerlIO implementation in Perl 5.8.0, when installed with setuid support (sperl), allows local users to create arbitrary files via the PERLIO_DEBUG variable.
Integer overflow in the duplication operator in ActivePerl allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large multiplier, which may trigger a buffer overflow.
Multiple scripts in the perl package in Trustix Secure Linux 1.5 through 2.1 and other operating systems allows local users to overwrite files via a symlink attack on temporary files.
Race condition in the rmtree function in the File::Path module in Perl 5.6.1 and 5.8.4 sets read/write permissions for the world, which allows local users to delete arbitrary files and directories, and possibly read files and directories, via a symlink attack.
Buffer overflow in the win32_stat function for (1) ActiveState's ActivePerl and (2) Larry Wall's Perl before 5.8.3 allows local or remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via filenames that end in a backslash character.
Perl 5.8.1 on Fedora Core does not properly initialize the random number generator when forking, which makes it easier for attackers to predict random numbers.
