Mageia Linux Local Check: mgasa-2015-0263

Published: 2015-10-15 07:42:53
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database (NVD)

Technical Details:
libcurl can wrongly send HTTP credentials when re-using connections. Even if the handle for an HTTP connection is reset, it retains the credentials, which can cause them to be unintentionally leaked in subsequent requests (CVE-2015-3236). libcurl can get tricked by a malicious SMB server to send off data it did not intend to. A malicious SMB server can use this to access arbitrary process memory, or to crash the client, causing a denial of service (CVE-2015-3237).

Recommendations:
Update the affected Linux Distribution Packages to the latest available version.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:P
