Fedora 24 : perl-Module-Load-Conditional (2016-dd20a4631a)

High Nessus Plugin ID 92810

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update adds an option 'FORCE_SAFE_INC', which, if set (it isn't by default), removes the current directory from the module load path so as to avoid loading code from a potentially unsafe place (CVE-2016-1238).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected perl-Module-Load-Conditional package.
