Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:011: curl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the curl package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:011 (curl).


infamous41md@hotpop.com reported a vulnerability in libcurl, the
HTTP/FTP retrieval library. This library is used by lots of programs,
including YaST2 and PHP4.

The NTLM authorization in curl had a buffer overflow in the base64
decoding which permits a remote attacker using a prepared remote
server to execute code for the user using curl.

The Kerberos authorization has a similar bug, but is not compiled
in on SUSE Linux.

This is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2005-0490.
