F5 Networks BIG-IP : cURL and libcurl vulnerability (K35453761)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 146611

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

cURL, as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 before version 7.19.7-53, did not correctly backport the fix for CVE-2015-3148 because it did not reflect the fact that the HAVE_GSSAPI define was meanwhile substituted by USE_HTTP_NEGOTIATE. This issue was introduced in RHEL 6.7 and affects RHEL 6 cURLonly. (CVE-2017-2628)

Impact

An application using libcurl with HTTP Negotiate authentication can incorrectly re-use credentials for subsequent requests to the same server.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K35453761.
