dave_aiello has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm sure most of my fellow monks are aware of the Zlib "Double Free" Vulnerability. The maintainers of the library have stated that over 500 apps on many different platforms may be affected. These include several Perl modules (list is an excerpt of Zlib's list): Are my fellow monks satisfied that this is the complete list of modules that are affected? If not, is there a more complete list, or can we build one here?

Have any monks begun to think about a risk mitigation strategy? By this I mean
