Red Hat has issued an update for perl. This fixes two security issues, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
1) The Safe module does not properly restrict code of implicitly called methods (e.g. "destroy" and "autoload"), which can be exploited to bypass Safe module restrictions and execute arbitrary perl code outside of a Safe compartment.
2) The Safe module does not properly restrict code in a Safe compartment which is executed out of the compartment via a subroutine reference. This can be exploited to bypass Safe module restrictions and execute arbitrary perl code outside of a Safe compartment.
Solution: Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
