Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0674

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0674.

Net::DNS is a collection of Perl modules that act as a Domain Name System
(DNS) resolver.

A flaw was found in the way Net::DNS generated the ID field in a DNS query.
This predictable ID field could be used by a remote attacker to return
invalid DNS data. (CVE-2007-3377)

A denial of service flaw was found in the way Net::DNS parsed certain DNS
requests. A malformed response to a DNS request could cause the application
using Net::DNS to crash or stop responding. (CVE-2007-3409)

Users of Net::DNS should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
