Fedora 11 Update: perl-IO-Socket-SSL-1.26-1.fc11 Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora This update to version 1.26 fixes an issue where only the prefix of the hostname was checked if there was no wildcard present, so for example www.example.org would match a certificate starting with www.exam.

Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-7435
2009-07-11 02:40:16
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : perl-IO-Socket-SSL
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.26
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/IO-Socket-SSL/
Summary     : Perl library for transparent SSL
Description :
This module is a true drop-in replacement for IO::Socket::INET that
uses SSL to encrypt data before it is transferred to a remote server
or client. IO::Socket::SSL supports all the extra features that one
needs to write a full-featured SSL client or server application:
multiple SSL contexts, cipher selection, certificate verification, and
SSL version selection. As an extra bonus, it works perfectly with
mod_perl.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update to version 1.26 fixes an issue where only the prefix of the hostname
was checked if there was no wildcard present, so for example www.example.org
would match a certificate starting with www.exam.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Sat Jul  4 2009 Paul Howarth  - 1.26-1
- Update to 1.26 (verify_hostname_of_cert matched only the prefix for the
  hostname when no wildcard was given, e.g. www.example.org matched against a
  certificate with name www.exam in it)
* Fri Jul  3 2009 Paul Howarth  - 1.25-1
- Update to 1.25 (fix t/nonblock.t for OS X 10.5 - CPAN RT#47240)
