Fedora Core 5 : curl-7.15.1-3 (2006-189)

High Nessus Plugin ID 21123


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This curl update fixes security vulnerability CVE-2006-1061 - curl can overflow a heap-based memory buffer if very long TFTP URL with valid host name is passed to curl. This update fixes installation problems on multilib architectures, too.

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


Update the affected curl, curl-debuginfo and / or curl-devel packages.
