the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id was
published for perl.
| Perl 5.10.x allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
| service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) by leveraging
| an ability to inject arguments into a (1) getpeername, (2) readdir,
| (3) closedir, (4) getsockname, (5) rewinddir, (6) tell, or (7) telldir
| function call.
If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE id in your changelog entry.
