Multiple potential remote and local vulnerabilities impacting Perl and PHP have been addressed by HPE NonStop Servers OSS Script Languages. The vulnerabilities include Perl's opportunistic loading of optional modules which might allow local users to gain elevation of privilege via a Trojan horse library under the current working directory.
