Integer overflow in the format string functionality (Perl_sv_vcatpvfn)
in Perl 5.9.2 and 5.8.6 Perl allows attackers to overwrite arbitrary
memory and possibly execute arbitrary code via format string
specifiers with large values, which causes an integer wrap and leads
to a buffer overflow, as demonstrated using format string
vulnerabilities in Perl applications.
