Heap-based buffer overflow in the Perl_repeatcpy function in util.c in Perl
5.12.x before 5.12.5, 5.14.x before 5.14.3, and 5.15.x before 15.15.5 allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption
and crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via the 'x' string repeat
Looks like the only thing that needs stabilizing is 5.12.5. @maintainers: good to stabilize it?
we'll stabilize 5.16.3 ASAP. (bug 461898)
