Dick Franks reported that a new version of Net::DNS is available  This version
fixes a potential security problem, described:


Updates for fedora and RHEL are recommended.
Comment 1 Robin Norwood 2007-06-23 12:07:25 EDT
Cc-ing Josh Bressers as part of the update is security related.

Note - I know of no exploits in the wild, however, as described in the RT above,
some issues have been noticed by users.

In particular, this link:


has a script which demonstrates the problem.  On my fc-7 system with
perl-Net-DNS-0.59-2.fc7, all of the child processes have the same 'ID's.  With
perl-Net-DNS-0.60-1.fc7, the IDs are randomized.

perl-Net-DNS-0.60-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
