Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:146
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : perl-Net-DNS
Date : July 12, 2007
Affected: 2007.0, 2007.1, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A flaw was discovered in the perl Net: :DNS module in the way it
generated the ID field in a DNS query. Because it is so predictable,
a remote attacker could exploit this to return invalid DNS data
(CVE-2007-3377).

A denial of service vulnerability was found in how 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).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
