  <title>PlRPC: Arbitrary code execution</title>
  <synopsis>PlRPC uses Storable which allows for code execution prior to
    Authentication

  <affected>
    <package name="dev-perl/PlRPC" auto="yes" arch="*">
      <unaffected range="ge">0.202.0-r2</unaffected>
      <vulnerable range="lt">0.202.0-r2</vulnerable>
    </package>

  <background>
    <p>The Perl RPC Module is a Perl module that implements IDL-free RPCs.</p>
  </background>
  <description>
    <p>PlRPC uses Storable module for serialization and deserialization of
      untrusted data. Deserialized data can contain objects which can lead to
      loading of foreign modules, and possible execution of arbitrary code.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A remote attacker could possibly execute
      arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of
      Service condition.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>External authentication mechanism can be used with PlRPC such as TLS or
      IPSEC.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All PlRPC users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-perl/PlRPC-0.202.0-r2"
    </code>
