Debian DLA-1569-2 : libdatetime-timezone-perl regression update

High Nessus Plugin ID 118806

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The previous update of libdatetime-time zone-perl to tzdata version 2018g was incomplete due to a newly introduced rule type that this version of libdatetime-time zone-perl could not parse.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.75-2+2018g.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libdatetime-time zone-perl packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected libdatetime-timezone-perl package.
