Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2021-12-13 19:50:16 UTC

The App::cpanminus package 1.7044 for Perl allows Signature Verification Bypass.

I can't tell if there's a fixed version based on URL.

No motion upstream since 2018... 108 open bugs...

That said, by default cpanm doesnt verify signatures at all anyway.
