Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : curl (MDVSA-2013:276)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71030


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated curl packages fix security vulnerability :

Scott Cantor discovered that curl, a file retrieval tool, would disable the CURLOPT_SSLVERIFYHOST check when the CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER setting was disabled. This would also disable ssl certificate host name checks when it should have only disabled verification of the certificate trust chain (CVE-2013-4545).
