Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-12-20 18:41:44 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2007-6341 to the following vulnerability:

Net/DNS/RR/A.pm in Net::DNS 0.60 build 654, as used in packages such
as SpamAssassin and OTRS, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (program "croak") via a crafted DNS response.


Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2008-01-07 21:12:38 EST
This issue has no security impact.  The flaw will cause Net::DNS to "croak",
which in turn should be handled by the calling application.  In the case of
RHEL, the only known application that uses this functionality is Spamassassin. 
Spamassassin handles this failure gracefully and continues to function, minus
the DNS tests.
Comment 2 Dick Franks 2008-02-13 13:10:28 EST
This and similar vulnerabilities fixed in Net::DNS version 0.63.
Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-19 05:10:17 EDT
Net::DNS version 0.63 is in rawhide.
