Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35720


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes CVE-2009-0129: The Crypto::OpenSSL::DSA module now croaks upon error rather than returning a -1 to ensure programmers are not caught by surprise which only checking for non-zero results.

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.


Update the affected perl-Crypt-OpenSSL-DSA package.
