[slackware-security]  perl (SSA:2013-072-01)

New perl packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current
to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/perl-5.16.3-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a flaw in the rehashing code that can be exploited
  to carry out a denial of service attack against code that uses arbitrary
  user input as hash keys.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-1667
  (* Security fix *)
