Description

Updated curl packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

cURL is a tool for getting files from FTP, HTTP, Gopher, Telnet, and Dict servers, using any of the supported protocols.

Stefan Esser discovered an off-by-one bug in curl. It may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a user's machine if the user can be tricked into executing curl with a carefully crafted URL. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-4077 to this issue.

All users of curl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
