Fedora 20 : curl-7.32.0-17.fc20 (2014-16538)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 79950
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.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- make CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT work again with threaded resolver (#1172572)

- allow to use TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 (#1153814)

- disable libcurl-level downgrade to SSLv3 (#1166567)

- low-speed-limit: avoid timeout flood (#1166239)

- fix handling of CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS in curl_easy_duphandle (CVE-2014-3707)

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 package.
