Fixed In Version: perl-5.10.1-140.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, when the SHA::Digest method was called on the corresponding class, Perl terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. An upstream patch has been applied, and calling any SHA::Digest method on a class yields a proper exception instead of Perl crash.
