Description

Updated perl-Email-Address package fixes security vulnerability:

The parse function in Email::Address module before 1.905 for Perl uses an
inefficient regular expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU consumption) via an empty quoted string in an RFC 2822
address (CVE-2014-0477).

The Email::Address module before 1.904 for Perl uses an inefficient regular
expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU
consumption) via vectors related to "backtracking into the phrase"
(CVE-2014-4720).
