Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This curl update fixes security vulnerability CVE-2006-1061 - curl can
overflow a heap-based memory buffer if very long TFTP URL with valid
host name is passed to curl. This update fixes installation problems
on multilib architectures, too.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
