Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : curl (MDVSA-2014:110)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated curl packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Paras Sethia discovered that libcurl would sometimes mix up multiple
HTTP and HTTPS connections with NTLM authentication to the same
server, sending requests for one user over the connection
authenticated as a different user (CVE-2014-0015).

libcurl can in some circumstances re-use the wrong connection when
asked to do transfers using other protocols than HTTP and FTP, causing
a transfer that was initiated by an application to wrongfully re-use
an existing connection to the same server that was authenticated using
different credentials (CVE-2014-0138).

libcurl incorrectly validates wildcard SSL certificates containing
literal IP addresses, so under certain conditions, it would allow and
use a wildcard match specified in the CN field, allowing a malicious
server to participate in a MITM attack or just fool users into
believing that it is a legitimate site (CVE-2014-0139).
