3. Problem description:

cURL is a tool for getting files from FTP, HTTP, Gopher, Telnet, and
Dict servers, using any of the supported protocols. cURL is designed
to work without user interaction or any kind of interactivity. 

Multiple buffer overflow bugs were found in the way curl processes base64
encoded replies. If a victim can be tricked into visiting a URL with curl,
a malicious web server could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CAN-2005-0490 to this issue.

All users of curl are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported fixes for these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

149322 - CAN-2005-0490 Multiple stack based buffer overflows in curl
