Data-UUID (1.221) **

Over the years, many people have recommended and used this module. The module's maintainer applies patches supplied by the community and releases upgrades without regressions.

However, much its code exists as XS, not perl, and the community has not provided fixes for reported bugs, including a security vulnerability reported in 2013 as CVE-2013-4184.

As of 2017, I would avoid using this insecure module and choose something else, such as UUID::Tiny, instead.
