Description

The PerlIO implementation in Perl 5.8.0, when installed with setuid support (sperl), allows local users to create arbitrary files via the PERLIO_DEBUG variable.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
