SuSE 11.3 Security Update : curl (SAT Patch Number 10166)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 81121


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


This update fixes the following security issues :

- URL request injection (bnc#911363) 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.

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

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

- curl_multi_remove_handle: don't crash on multiple removes (bnc#897816)


Apply SAT patch number 10166.
