I'm sure most of my fellow monks are aware of the Zlib "Double Free" Vulnerability. The maintainers of the library have stated that over 500 apps on many different platforms may be affected. These include several Perl modules (list is an excerpt of Zlib's list):
  • perl-Compress-Zlib
  • perl-GD
  • perl-Gtk-Perl
  • perl-HTML-Embperl
  • perl-Msql-Mysql-modules
  • perl-Qt
Are my fellow monks satisfied that this is the complete list of modules that are affected? If not, is there a more complete list, or can we build one here?

Have any monks begun to think about a risk mitigation strategy? By this I mean

  • how to track when vulnerable modules are updated and
  • how to ensure that updated modules are pushed out to all the boxes where Perl code is deployed?

In reply to Perl Exposure to Zlib Vulnerability, Mitigation Strategy? by dave_aiello

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
