Description

An update for curl is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Low. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link (s) in the References section.

The curl packages provide the libcurl library and the curl utility for downloading files from servers using various protocols, including HTTP, FTP, and LDAP.

Security Fix(es) :

  • curl: NTLM password overflow via integer overflow (CVE-2018-14618)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es) :

  • baseurl with file:// hangs and then timeout in yum repo (BZ#1709474)

  • curl crashes on http links with rate-limit (BZ#1711914)
