Problem description

Tavis Ormandy and Will Drewry discovered a flaw in Perl's regular
expression engine. Specially crafted input to a regular expression can
cause Perl to improperly allocate memory, resulting in the possible
execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running
Perl.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
