Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:224
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : curl
Date : December 8, 2005
Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Stefan Esser discovered that libcurl's URL parser function can have
a malloced buffer overflows in two ways if given a too long URL. It
cannot be triggered by a redirect, which makes remote exploitation
unlikely, but can be passed directly to libcurl (allowing for local
exploitation) and could also be used to break out of PHP's safe_mode/
open_basedir.

This vulnerability only exists in libcurl and curl 7.11.2 up to and
including 7.15.0, which means that Corporate Server 2.1 and Corporate
3.0 are not vulnerable.

The updated packages have been patched to correct the problem. As
well, updated php-curl packages are available that provide a new curl
PHP module compiled against the fixed code.
