Fedora 7 : perl-Net-DNS-0.60-1.fc7 (2007-0668)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This brings F-7 up to date with the latest changes to Net::DNS. See
the project page here :

http://search.cpan.org/~olaf/Net-DNS-0.60/

The change for this upstream issue is included :

http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=23961

Since this fix has security implications (making DNS spoofing more
difficult), pushing updates to all current versions of fedora.

Note - I know of no exploits for the security issue described above.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
