-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2014-4454 2014-03-28 01:48:28 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : perl-Authen-Captcha Product : Fedora 19 Version : 1.024 Release : 1.fc19 URL : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Authen-Captcha/ Summary : Perl extension for creating captchas Description : Authen::Captcha provides an object oriented interface to captcha file creations. Captcha stands for Completely Automated Public Turning test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: An issue in previous versions of perl-Authen-Captcha is that the generated public string (file name of the picture) for the captcha is merely a checksum of the secret string. It is trivial to break such short strings even using google instead of a rainbow table. Version 1.024 of the module fixes this. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Thu Mar 27 2014 Emmanuel Seyman <emmanuel@seyman.fr> - 1.024-1 - Update to 1.024 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use su -c 'yum update perl-Authen-Captcha' at the command line. For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum", available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/. All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key. More details on the GPG keys used by the Fedora Project can be found at https://fedoraproject.org/keys -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- _______________________________________________ package-announce mailing list package-announce@lists.fedoraproject.org https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/package-...
