Description: 
 libnet-dns-perl - Perform DNS queries from a Perl script
Closes: 457445
Changes: 
 libnet-dns-perl (0.59-1etch1) stable-security; urgency=high
 .
   * Malformed A records could lead to a Perl exception and program crash
     (CVE-2007-6341).  Closes: #457445.
   * A very weak random number generator was used for transaction IDs
     (CVE-2007-3377).
     Perl's rand() is used in the patch against this vulnerability--it is
     initialized from /dev/urandom, but the underlying LCG has only got 48
     bits of state, so at the very least, a brute-force attack is still
     possible if an attacker has got three subsequently generated
     transaction IDs.
   * The Perl implementation of dn_expand could recurse infinitely
     (CVE-2007-3409).  (On Debian systems, the C version is typically
     used.)
