Detail

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in cURL, the worst of which could lead to man-in-the-middle attacks.

Background

cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax, supporting numerous protocols.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in cURL. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact

A remote attacker could cause a man-in-the-middle attack via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate certification authority.
Furthermore, a context-dependent attacker may be able to bypass security restrictions by connecting as other users.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All cURL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/curl-7.36.0"

Title: SUSE-OU-2014:0571-1 -- Optional OpenSSL 1.0 versions of cyrus-sasl, libcurl4 and libldap
Description: This update includes variants of existing libraries built against OpenSSL 1.0. As OpenSSL 0.8.9j and OpenSSL 1.0.1 are not binary compatible, but have the same function names, care must be taken that they are not loaded by the same program. As some system libraries also link against libssl.so or libcrypto.so, these need to be available in variants linked against OpenSSL 1.0. These libraries are installed below the /opt/suse/ directory hierarchy. The version and the APIs of these "shadow" libraries are exactly the same as the versions in the system, and so are interchangeable. For building your OpenSSL 1.0 enabled program, link using the linkflags -L/opt/suse/lib64 -Wl, -rpath, /opt/suse/lib64 (on 32bit systems, use lib instead of lib64). This update provides variants for the OpenLDAP2 client, libcurl4 and cyrus-sasl libraries. Additionally, two bugs have been fixed in openldap2 regarding IPv6 support: * tls_checkpeer does not work with IPv6 address as Subject Alternative Name. (bnc#862623) * getaddrinfo does not return if ldap is used for host lookups on IPv6 environments. (bnc#843697)

Title: RHSA-2014:0561: curl security and bug fix update (Moderate)
Description: cURL provides the libcurl library and a command line tool for downloading files from servers using various protocols, including HTTP, FTP, and LDAP. It was found that libcurl could incorrectly reuse existing connections for requests that should have used different or no authentication credentials, when using one of the following protocols: HTTP(S) with NTLM authentication, LDAP(S), SCP, or SFTP. If an application using the libcurl library connected to a remote server with certain authentication credentials, this flaw could cause other requests to use those same credentials. (CVE-2014-0015, CVE-2014-0138) Red Hat would like to thank the cURL project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Paras Sethia as the original reporter of CVE-2014-0015 and Yehezkel Horowitz for discovering the security impact of this issue, and Steve Holme as the original reporter of CVE-2014-0138. This update also fixes the following bugs: * Previously, the libcurl library was closing a network socket without first terminating the SSL connection using the socket. This resulted in a write after close and consequent leakage of memory dynamically allocated by the SSL library. An upstream patch has been applied on libcurl to fix this bug. As a result, the write after close no longer happens, and the SSL library no longer leaks memory. (BZ#1092479) * Previously, the libcurl library did not implement a non-blocking SSL handshake, which negatively affected performance of applications based on libcurl's multi API. To fix this bug, the non-blocking SSL handshake has been implemented by libcurl. With this update, libcurl's multi API immediately returns the control back to the application whenever it cannot read/write data from/to the underlying network socket. (BZ#1092480) * Previously, the curl package could not be rebuilt from sources due to an expired cookie in the upstream test-suite, which runs during the build. An upstream patch has been applied to postpone the expiration date of the cookie, which makes it possible to rebuild the package from sources again. (BZ#1092486) * Previously, the libcurl library attempted to authenticate using Kerberos whenever such an authentication method was offered by the server. This caused problems when the server offered multiple authentication methods and Kerberos was not the selected one. An upstream patch has been applied on libcurl to fix this bug. Now libcurl no longer uses Kerberos authentication if another authentication method is selected. (BZ#1096797) All curl users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running applications that use libcurl have to be restarted for this update to take effect.
