To build on Andy's second item - here is a link to a slightly more
recent CVE released yesterday:

The following are some
important security updates related to perfSONAR that we would like to
make everyone aware of:
- Version 184.108.40.206 of
the perl-perfSONAR-Toolkit packages were pushed out today. These contain
an important fix to the default firewall configuration. For clean
installs of version 3.5, the default firewall rules were not setup to
properly reject packets. If you upgraded to 3.5 from a previous version
your rules should be setup correctly. If you have automatic updates
enabled you should get this update automatically, otherwise run “yum
update perl-perfSONAR_PS-Toolkit-security” to get the change. No further
action is required beyond the yum update.
- An important update
to glibc was released that has pretty wide impact to software beyond
just perfSONAR. See https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-2015-7547
details. Updated packages for CentOS should be available shortly.
Again, if you have automatic updates enabled you should get this update
automatically when they are available, otherwise run “yum update glibc”
to get the latest version.
Please let us know if
you have any further questions.
