 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:151

 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : curl
 Date    : April 26, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated curl packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 libcurl is vulnerable to a cookie leak vulnerability when doing
 requests across domains with matching tails. This vulnerability can be
 used to hijack sessions in targetted attacks since registering domains
 using a known domain's name as an ending is trivial (CVE-2013-1944).
