Description

LSAC(v2)
The perl-IO-Socket-SSL package is a drop-in replacement for IO-Socket-INET that uses SSL to encrypt data before it is transferred to a remote server or client. IO::Socket::SSL supports all the extra features that one needs to write a full-featured SSL client or server application. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, check_crl routines could, under certain circumstances, cause a segmentation fault. This update modifies the underlying code so that the correct function is now called and the check_crl routine works as expected. (BZ#815335) All users of perl-IO-Socket-SSL are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
