Perl updating inc
Lightsey and Todd Rinaldo from c Panel (a top-shelf Perl Foundation Core Maintenance Fund sponsor) first reported the issue as CVE-2016-1238.
You don’t even need to use the module in some cases as other modules might helpfully try to use it for you, as in a plugin or Storable’s object inflation bug.
The code itself and the data do not; the symbols are the names of pointers that point (indirectly) to the memory areas that contain the code and data.
(Note for C/C programmers: We use the term `pointer' in a general sense of one piece of data referring to another piece of data, and not in the specific sense as used in C or C .) There is one symbol table for each package, (which is why .
This lack of output indicates that Perl was able to successfully find (and use) this module -- there's no reason to show an error message because these commands will normally run inside of a larger script, and when there's no errors there's also no need for error output.
However, if I try the same command with a module that doesn't exist, like this: Can't locate Foo/Bar/in @INC (@INC contains: /sw/lib/perl5 /sw/lib/perl5/darwin /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8 /Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.8 /Library/Perl /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.8 /Network/Library/Perl /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.8 /Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.1 .
There’s a fix for one consequence of this problem, but there are still issues of trust. If you’re running from a shared directory, this might affect you.
When using modules that are not installed in the standard directories of Perl, we need to change @INC so perl will be able to find them.
There are several ways to do that solving different use-cases.
If you are worried about loading modules from directories writeable by other users, why would you limit yourself to looking at a single entry in and only removing it if it has a hard-coded entry in only the last position?
And, doing this despite the actual permissions on that directory?
