Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description :

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


[email protected] 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 allows 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.
