[SECURITY] Fedora Core 5 Update: perl-Net-DNS-0.60-1.fc5

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : perl-Net-DNS
Version     : 0.60
Release     : 1.fc5
Summary     : DNS resolver modules for Perl
Description :
Net::DNS is a collection of Perl modules that act as a Domain Name
System (DNS) resolver. It allows the programmer to perform DNS queries
that are beyond the capabilities of gethostbyname and gethostbyaddr.

The programmer should be somewhat familiar with the format of a DNS
packet and its various sections. See RFC 1035 or DNS and BIND (Albitz
& Liu) for details.

Update Information:

This brings FC-5 up to date with the latest changes to
Net::DNS. See the project page here:


The change for this upstream issue is included:


Since this fix has security implications (making DNS
spoofing more difficult), pushing updates to all current
versions of fedora.

Note - I know of no exploits for the security issue
described above.
