Synopsis:          Moderate: perl-Net-DNS security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2007:0674-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2007-0674.html
Issue date:        2007-07-12
Updated on:        2007-07-12
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names:         CVE-2007-3377 CVE-2007-3409 
- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated perl-Net-DNS packages that correct two security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - noarch
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Problem description:

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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
