Slackware Security Announcement 2009-08-14 curl (SSA:2009-226-01)

 

[slackware-security] curl (SSA:2009-226-01)

 

New curl packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix a security issue.

 

For more information, see:

http://curl.haxx.se/docs/security.html

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2417

 

 

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:

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

patches/packages/curl-7.19.6-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:

This update fixes a security issue where a zero byte embedded in an SSL or TLS certificate could fool cURL into validating the security of a connection to a system that the certificate was not issued for. It has been reported that at least one Certificate Authority allowed such certificates to be issued.

For more information, see:

http://curl.haxx.se/docs/security.html

(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

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

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com? Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading directly from ftp.slackware.com.

 

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab (http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for additional mirror sites near you.
