User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake "infamous41md" discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in libcurl's NTLM authorization base64 decoding. This could allow a remote attacker using a prepared remote server to execute arbitrary code as the user running curl. The updated packages are patched to deal with these issues.
