Scientific Linux Security Update : curl on SL4.x, SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

cURL provides the libcurl library and a command line tool for
downloading files from servers using various protocols, including
HTTP, FTP, and LDAP.

It was found that cURL always performed credential delegation when
authenticating with GSSAPI. A rogue server could use this flaw to
obtain the client's credentials and impersonate that client to other
servers that are using GSSAPI. (CVE-2011-2192)

All running applications using libcurl must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
