Description

o Updated upstream fix for sprintf integer overflow vulnerabilities CVE-2005-3962 and CVE-2005-3912, including new Sys::Syslog 0.08

o Updated fix for bug 136009 / MakeMaker LD_RUN_PATH issue: restore previous default Red Hat behavior of removing the MakeMaker generated LD_RUN_PATH setting from the link command .Document this removal, as it contravenes upstream default behavior, and provide a USE_MM_LD_RUN_PATH MakeMaker member to enable use of the MakeMaker generated LD_RUN_PATH .

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
