Description

This brings FC-6 up to date with the latest changes to Net::DNS. See the project page here :

http://search.cpan.org/~olaf/Net-DNS-0.60/

The change for this upstream issue is included :

http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=23961

Since this fix has security implications (making DNS spoofing more difficult), pushing updates to all current versions of fedora.

Note - I know of no exploits for the security issue described above.

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.
