Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

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.

- duphandle read out of bounds. (bnc#901924).
(CVE-2014-3707)

- libcurl cookie leaks (bnc#894575) Additional bug fixed:.
