The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update of curl fixes several security issues :

- libcurl URL decode buffer boundary flaw. (bnc#824517 / CVE-2013-2174)

- cookie domain tailmatch. (bnc#814655 / CVE-2013-1944)

- curl sets SSL_OP_ALL. (bnc#742306 / CVE-2011-3389)

- When SSL_OP_NETSCAPE_REUSE_CIPHER_CHANGE_BUG is enabled, does not properly prevent modification of the ciphersuite in the session cache, which allows remote attackers to force the downgrade to an unintended cipher via vectors involving sniffing network traffic to discover a session identifier. (CVE-2010-4180)
