./lang/perl5, Practical Extraction and Report Language

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.28.1, Package name: perl-5.28.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Perl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed
for text manipulation and now used for a wide range of tasks including
system administration, web development, network programming, GUI
development, and more. The language is intended to be practical (easy
to use, efficient, complete) rather than beautiful (tiny, elegant,
minimal). Its major features are that it's easy to use, supports both
procedural and object-oriented (OO) programming, has powerful built-in
support for text processing, and has one of the world's most impressive
collections of third-party modules.

Log message:
perl5: updated to 5.28.1

what is new for perl v5.28.1:

Security
   [CVE-2018-18311] Integer overflow leading to buffer overflow and segmentation \ 
fault
       Integer arithmetic in "Perl_my_setenv()" could wrap when the \ 
combined length of the environment variable
       name and value exceeded around 0x7fffffff.  This could lead to writing \ 
beyond the end of an allocated buffer
       with attacker supplied data.

   [CVE-2018-18312] Heap-buffer-overflow write in S_regatom (regcomp.c)
       A crafted regular expression could cause heap-buffer-overflow write \ 
during compilation, potentially allowing
       arbitrary code execution.

Incompatible Changes
       There are no changes intentionally incompatible with 5.28.0.  If any \ 
exist, they are bugs, and we request
       that you submit a report.  See "Reporting Bugs" below.

Modules and Pragmata
   Updated Modules and Pragmata
       o   Module::CoreList has been upgraded from version 5.20180622 to \ 
5.20181129_28.

Selected Bug Fixes
       o   Perl 5.28 introduced an "index()" optimization when \ 
comparing to -1 (or indirectly, e.g. >= 0).  When
           this optimization was triggered inside a "when" clause it \ 
caused a warning ("Argument %s isn't numeric
           in smart match").  This has now been fixed.

       o   Matching of decimal digits in script runs, introduced in Perl 5.28, \ 
had a bug that led to "1\N{THAI
           DIGIT FIVE}" matching "/^(*sr:\d+)$/" when it should \ 
not.  This has now been fixed.

       o   The new in-place editing code no longer leaks directory handles.
