Description :

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in perl-Crypt-DSA :

The Crypt::DSA (aka Crypt-DSA) module 1.17 and earlier for Perl, when
/dev/random is absent, uses the Data::Random module, which makes it
easier for remote attackers to spoof a signature, or determine the
signing key of a signed message, via a brute-force attack

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
