Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : curl (MDVSA-2015:021)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80467


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


Updated curl packages fix security vulnerability :

When libcurl sends a request to a server via a HTTP proxy, it copies the entire URL into the request and sends if off. If the given URL contains line feeds and carriage returns those will be sent along to the proxy too, which allows the program to for example send a separate HTTP request injected embedded in the URL (CVE-2014-8150).


Update the affected packages.
