Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
It was discovered that curl incorrectly handled SASL authentication
when communicating over POP3, SMTP or IMAP. If a user or automated
system were tricked into processing a specially crafted URL, an
attacker could cause a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. The default compiler options for affected releases
should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service.
Update the affected libcurl3, libcurl3-gnutls and / or libcurl3-nss
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
Public Exploit Available : true
