Description: ------------ The package lowers the security of randomly generated numbers by seeding the random number generator by itself. Please remove the [mt_]srand() call from the code. For more information, read: http://www.nabble.com/Re%3A-Random-number-generation-security-problem-p19595503.html http://news.php.net/php.pear.dev/50791 http://www.suspekt.org/2008/08/17/mt_srand-and-not-so-random-numbers/
