Problem description

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that the perl Net::SSLeay
module used the file /tmp/entropy as a fallback entropy source if a
proper source was not set via the environment variable EGD_PATH. This
could potentially lead to weakened cryptographic operations if an
attacker was able to provide a /tmp/entropy file with known content.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
