The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
A flaw was discovered in the perl Net::DNS module in the way it
generated the ID field in a DNS query. Because it is so predictable, a
remote attacker could exploit this to return invalid DNS data
A denial of service vulnerability was found in how Net::DNS parsed
certain DNS requests. A malformed response to a DNS request could
cause the application using Net::DNS to crash or stop responding
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
Update the affected perl-Net-DNS package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
