rPath Security Advisory: 2010-0072-1
Published: 2010-10-27
    rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 2
    rPath Linux 2

Rating: Minor
Exposure Level Classification:
    Indirect User Non-deterministic Denial of Service
Updated Versions:
    curl=conary.rpath.com () rpl:2/7.17.0-2.3-1

rPath Issue Tracking System:


    Previous versions of curl do not properly restrict the amount of
    callback data sent to an application that requests automatic 
    decompression, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial
    of service (application crash) or have unspecified other impact by
    sending crafted compressed data to an application that relies on the
    intended data-length limit.  This has been fixed.
