Mandrake Updated package.
 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2005:224
 Package : curl
 Date    : December 8, 2005
 Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0
 Problem Description:
 Stefan Esser discovered that libcurl's URL parser function can have
 a malloced buffer overflows in two ways if given a too long URL.  It
 cannot be triggered by a redirect, which makes remote exploitation
 unlikely, but can be passed directly to libcurl (allowing for local
 exploitation) and could also be used to break out of PHP's safe_mode/
 This vulnerability only exists in libcurl and curl 7.11.2 up to and
 including 7.15.0, which means that Corporate Server 2.1 and Corporate
 3.0 are not vulnerable.
 The updated packages have been patched to correct the problem.  As
 well, updated php-curl packages are available that provide a new curl
 PHP module compiled against the fixed code.
