[slackware-security] curl (SSA:2013-038-01)

 

New curl packages are available for Slackware 14.0, and -current to

fix a security issue.

 

 

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:

+--------------------------+

patches/packages/curl-7.29.0-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded.

When negotiating SASL DIGEST-MD5 authentication, the function

Curl_sasl_create_digest_md5_message() uses the data provided from the

server without doing the proper length checks and that data is then

appended to a local fixed-size buffer on the stack. This vulnerability

can be exploited by someone who is in control of a server that a libcurl

based program is accessing with POP3, SMTP or IMAP. For applications

that accept user provided URLs, it is also thinkable that a malicious

user would feed an application with a URL to a server hosting code

targeting this flaw.

Affected versions: curl 7.26.0 to and including 7.28.1

For more information, see:
