Scientific Linux Security Update : perl-Net-DNS on SL3.0.x, SL4.x, SL5.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60223
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way Net::DNS generated the ID field in a DNS query. This predictable ID field could be used by a remote attacker to return invalid DNS data. (CVE-2007-3377)
A denial of service flaw was found in the way Net::DNS parsed certain DNS requests. A malformed response to a DNS request could cause the application using Net::DNS to crash or stop responding.
SolutionUpdate the affected perl-Net-DNS package.
