It was discovered that Perl's Safe module - a module to compile and 
execute code in restricted compartments - could by bypassed.

Please note that this update is known to break Petal, an XML-based 
templating engine (shipped with Debian 6.0/Squeeze in the package
libpetal-perl, see
for details). A fix is not yet available. If you use Petal, you might
consider to put the previous Perl packages on hold.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.10.0-19lenny5.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.10.1-17squeeze2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.12.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your perl packages.
