Patch an old Perl versionby Discipulus (Abbot)
|on Nov 08, 2013 at 08:58 UTC||Need Help??|
Discipulus has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I read here that older Perl distros are affected by an hash function vulnerability.
I have to admit that i understood only one third of the explanation.. but fortunately there is a simple oneliner to test your version, and one of mines prints "not ok".
Where can I find a patch for my distro? How can apply it? I need to recompile from source? or better replace with a 5.18 when it is possible.
There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
