CVE-2012-6329

Priority
Medium
Description
The _compile function in Maketext.pm in the Locale::Maketext implementation
in Perl before 5.17.7 does not properly handle backslashes and fully
qualified method names during compilation of bracket notation, which allows
context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary commands via crafted input
to an application that accepts translation strings from users, as
demonstrated by the TWiki application before 5.1.3, and the Foswiki
application 1.0.x through 1.0.10 and 1.1.x through 1.1.6.
