-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 : 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 <> - 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 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 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- _______________________________________________ package-announce mailing list
