658976: perl-CGI, perl-CGI-Simple: CVE-2010-2761 - hardcoded MIME boundary value for multipart content, CVE-2010-4410 - CRLF injection allowing HTTP response splitting

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The multipart_init function in (1) before 3.50 and (2) in CGI::Simple 1.112 and earlier uses a hardcoded value of the MIME boundary string in multipart/x-mixed-replace content, which allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via crafted input that contains this value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-3172.
