I've updated the lang/perl58 packages in pkgsrc to 5.8.6nb3, which fixes
CAN-2005-0155 and CAN-2005-0156. They are "local root exploit" and
"buffer overrun" security advisories, respectively. The vulnerable
versions are perl versions between 5.8.0 and 5.8.6nb2.
I'll be submitting patches for pkgsrc-2004Q4 soon to update lang/perl58
on that branch to 5.8.5nb8 to fix this same issue.
