This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update fixes the following security issues :

- URL request injection (bnc#911363) When libcurl sends a
request to a server via a HTTP proxy, it copies the
entire URL into the request and sends if off.
(CVE-2014-8150)

If the given URL contains line feeds and carriage
returns those will be sent along to the proxy too, which
allows the program to for example send a separate HTTP
request injected embedded in the URL.

(CVE-2014-3707)

- libcurl cookie leaks (bnc#894575) Additional bug fixed:.

removes (bnc#897816)
