Several potential buffer overflows in the ePerl package have been found by Fumitoshi Ukai and Denis Barbier. When eperl is installed setuid root, it can switch to the UID/GID of the script's owner. Although Linux-Mandrake does not ship the program setuid root, this is a useful feature which some users may have activated locally on their own. There is also the potential for a remote vulnerability as well.
