Hello all,

I just read the following:

07.52.14 CVE: CVE-2007-6341
Platform: Linux
Title: Perl Net::DNS DNS Response Remote Denial of Service
Description: The Perl Net::DNS module allows scripts written in Perl
to perform DNS queries. The application is exposed to a remote denial
of service issue due to a failure of the module to properly handle
malformed DNS responses. DNS version 0.60 is affected.

Julian, your easy Clam+SA install package contains Net::DNS 0.60.  The 
current version is 0.62.
