Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:063: curl, wget

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the curl, wget package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:063 (curl, wget).


This update fixes a stack-based buffer overflow in the NTLM
authentication code used by the file download tools/libraries curl
and wget that can be triggered by using a long user or domain name
(also works with HTTP redirects).

By exploiting this bug by using a malicious server a possible hacker may
be able to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the entity
running the process locally. (CVE-2005-3185)

This affects both curl/libcurl and wget >= 1.10. wget copied the code
from libcurl, making this effectively the same problem.
