Fedora 10 : perl-5.10.0-73.fc10 (2009-7680)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39847
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis security update fixes an off-by-one overflow in Compress::Raw::Zlib (CVE-2009-1391) Moreover, it contains a subtle change to the configuration that does not affect the Perl interpreter itself, but fixes the propagation of the chosen options to the modules. For example, a rebuild of perl-Wx against perl-5.10.0-73 will fix bug 508496.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected perl package.
