Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : curl (MDVSA-2015:220)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated curl packages fix security vulnerabilities :

NTLM-authenticated connections could be wrongly reused for requests
without any credentials set, leading to HTTP requests being sent over
the connection authenticated as a different user (CVE-2015-3143).

When doing HTTP requests using the Negotiate authentication method
along with NTLM, the connection used would not be marked as
authenticated, making it possible to reuse it and send requests for
one user over the connection authenticated as a different user
(CVE-2015-3148).
