medium Nessus Plugin ID 79321
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated curl packages fix security vulnerability :

Symeon Paraschoudis discovered that the curl_easy_duphandle() function in cURL has a bug that can lead to libcurl eventually sending off sensitive data that was not intended for sending, while performing a HTTP POST operation. This bug requires CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS and curl_easy_duphandle() to be used in that order, and then the duplicate handle must be used to perform the HTTP POST. The curl command line tool is not affected by this problem as it does not use this sequence (CVE-2014-3707).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
