Untrusted search path vulnerability in the installation functionality in ActivePerl 126.96.36.1991, when installed in the top-level C:\ directory, allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse DLL in the C:\Perl\Site\bin directory, which is added to the PATH system environment variable, as demonstrated by a Trojan horse wlbsctrl.dll file used by the "IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules" system service in Windows Vista SP1, Windows Server 2008 SP2, Windows 7 SP1, and Windows 8 Release Preview.
ActiveState ActivePerl 188.8.131.527 for Windows configures the site/lib directory with "Users" group permissions for changing files, which allows local users to gain privileges by creating a malicious sitecustomize.pl file in that directory. NOTE: The provenance of this information is unknown; the details are obtained solely from third party information.
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.
ActivePerl 5.8.x and others, and Larry Wall's Perl 5.6.1 and others, when running on Windows systems, allows attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long argument to the system command, which leads to a stack-based buffer overflow. NOTE: it is unclear whether this bug is in Perl or the OS API that is used by Perl.
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.
Buffer overflow in PerlIS.dll in Activestate ActivePerl 184.108.40.2069 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an HTTP request for a long filename that ends in a .pl extension.
