SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : curl (SUSE-SU-2016:0340-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update for curl fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2016-0755: libcurl would reuse NTLM-authenticated
proxy connections without properly making sure that the
connection was authenticated with the same credentials
as set for this transfer (bsc#962983)

The following non-security bugs were fixed :

- bsc#936676: secure_getenv or __secure_getenv may not be
detected correctly at build time

The following tracked bugs only affect the test suite :

- bsc#962996: Expired cookie in test 46 caused test
failures

- bsc#934333: Curl test suite was not run, is now enabled
during build

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