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

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.

Solution:
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
