1. Summary:

An updated perl-DBI package that fixes a temporary file flaw in
DBI::ProxyServer is now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for
the Perl programming language. 

The Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library creates a
temporary PID file in an insecure manner.  A local user could overwrite or
create files as a different user who happens to run an application which
uses DBI::ProxyServer.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0077 to this issue. 

Users should update to this erratum package which disables the temporary
PID file unless configured.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
