Amazon Linux AMI : curl (ALAS-2015-477)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81323

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

The curl_easy_duphandle function in libcurl 7.17.1 through 7.38.0, when running with the CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS option, does not properly copy HTTP POST data for an easy handle, which triggers an out-of-bounds read that allows remote web servers to read sensitive memory information. (CVE-2014-3707)

CRLF injection vulnerability in libcurl 6.0 through 7.x before 7.40.0, when using an HTTP proxy, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via CRLF sequences in a URL. (CVE-2014-8150)

Solution

Run 'yum update curl' to update your system.
