Patch ID: 149700-01

* 2941980 (Tracking ID: 2941980)

SYMPTOM:
iA flaw was reported in perl Digest module's "Digest->new()" function, which did not properly sanitize input before using it in an eval() call, which could possibly be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary perl code.

DESCRIPTION:
Eval injection in the Digest module before 1.17 for Perl allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary commands via the new constructor.

RESOLUTION:
Source change
