Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated curl packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

cURL is a tool for getting files from FTP, HTTP, Gopher, Telnet, and Dict
servers, using any of the supported protocols.

execute arbitrary code on a user's machine if the user can be tricked into
executing curl with a carefully crafted URL. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-4077 to this issue.

All users of curl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
