Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:199
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : perl
Date : October 21, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated perl and perl-Data-Dumper packages fixes security
vulnerability:

The Dumper method in Data::Dumper before 2.154, allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (stack
consumption and crash) via an Array-Reference with many nested
Array-References, which triggers a large number of recursive calls
to the DD_dump function (CVE-2014-4330).

The Data::Dumper module bundled with perl and the perl-Data-Dumper
packages has been updated to fix this issue.
