Description:

    Previous versions of Perl contained a race condition in the rmtree     function of the File::Path module that allowed local users to create     arbitrary setuid binaries via a symlink attack. This is a regression     related to CVE-2005-0448.     

    Additionally a double free vulnerability exists that allows     context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service via a     crafted regular expression containing UTF8 characters.
