Fedora has issued an advisory for this today (September 25):
Fixed upstream in 1.643
The updated packages fix security vulnerabilities:
An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.643 for Perl. The hv_fetch() documentation requires checking for NULL and the code does that. But, shortly thereafter, it calls SvOK(profile), causing a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2019-20919)
An untrusted pointer dereference flaw was found in Perl-DBI < 1.643. A local attacker who is able to manipulate calls to dbd_db_login6_sv() could cause memory corruption, affecting the service's availability. (CVE-2020-14392)
A buffer overflow was found in perl-DBI < 1.643 in DBI.xs. A local attacker who is able to supply a string longer than 300 characters could cause an out-of-bounds write, affecting the availability of the service or integrity of data. (CVE-2020-14393)
Updated packages in core/updates_testing:
Fixed upstream in 1.643 =>
Very much out of my area of expertise, but it's been here over 3 weeks, so...
perl-DBI was already installed on my system, so I installed the other two packages, too. Updated all three using QA Repo, no installation issues.
No idea of how to test, so passing it on with a clean install. Validating. AQdvisory in Comment 5.
Advisory pushed to SVN.
