 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:180
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : curl
 Date    : June 27, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in curl:
 
 libcurl is vulnerable to a case of bad checking of the input data
 which may lead to heap corruption. The function curl_easy_unescape()
 decodes URL encoded strings to raw binary data. URL encoded octets are
 represented with \%HH combinations where HH is a two-digit hexadecimal
 number. The decoded string is written to an allocated memory area
 that the function returns to the caller (CVE-2013-2174).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
