MDKA-2007:035 : curl

High Nessus Plugin ID 25210


The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The curl shipped with 2007.0 had a bug which prevented it from working with the Club repositories, meaning users could not access the Club repositories unless they switched the default downloader for urpmi and rpmdrake to be wget. This update fixes the bug and allows the Club repositories to work with curl as the default downloader for urpmi and rpmdrake, saving users the need to change the default downloader.


Update the affected package(s).
