Package        : libcgi-pm-perl
Vulnerability  : HTTP header injection
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-5526
Debian Bug     : 693421

It was discovered that the CGI module for Perl does not filter LF
characters in the Set-Cookie and P3P headers, potentially allowing
attackers to inject HTTP headers.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.49-1squeeze2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.61-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcgi-pm-perl packages.
