Description Robin Norwood 2007-06-23 16:52:19 UTC
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.

see also bug #245458, which tracks the Fedora version.

RHEL5 uses Net-DNS-0.59-1, just like Fedora FC5-F7, so the fix is the same. 
However, older versions of RHEL use much older versions of Net::DNS - I have not
yet verified that the issue exists with these versions, or done a review of the
other changes to check for other possible issues.
