 Date    : September 25, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in perl-Crypt-DSA:
 
 The Crypt::DSA (aka Crypt-DSA) module 1.17 and earlier for Perl,
 when /dev/random is absent, uses the Data::Random module, which makes
 it easier for remote attackers to spoof a signature, or determine
 the signing key of a signed message, via a brute-force attack
 (CVE-2011-3599).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
