Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : perl-Net-DNS (MDKSA-2007:146)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

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
(CVE-2007-3377).

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
(CVE-2007-3409).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected perl-Net-DNS package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
