Description Josh Bressers 2008-09-18 15:19:02 EDT
PyDNS (aka python-dns) before 2.3.1-4 in Debian GNU/Linux does not use
random source ports or transaction IDs for DNS requests, which makes
it easier for remote attackers to spoof DNS responses, a different
vulnerability than CVE-2008-1447.

Current Fedora and EPEL have 2.3.3, so this is no longer an issue there.
