#57979: perl 5.28 triggers malware filter, kills build
 Reporter:  darynwhite  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal      |  Milestone:
Component:  ports       |    Version:
 Keywords:              |       Port:  perl.5.28
 As also documented here: https://github.com/perlorg/perlweb/issues/280

 I realize that the codebase is outside of the control of the maintainers
 of the port.

 The issue is that the {{{port upgrade outdated}}} fails due to this
 problem. McAfee removes the suspect file when it extracts and, for me at
 least, there is no bypassing McAfee.

 The file is CVE-2015-1592.inc and is labeled as a trojan.
