Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:165  http://www.mandriva.com/security/
Package : perl Date : August 11, 2008 Affected: 2008.1
_______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 The rmtree function in lib/File/Path.pm in Perl 5.10 does not properly  check permissions before performing a chmod, which allows local users  to modify the permissions of arbitrary files via a symlink attack.  

 The updated packages have been patched to fix this.
