 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : curl
 Date    : November 21, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated curl packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 Scott Cantor discovered that curl, a file retrieval tool, would disable
 the CURLOPT_SSLVERIFYHOST check when the CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER
 setting was disabled. This would also disable ssl certificate host
 name checks when it should have only disabled verification of the
 certificate trust chain (CVE-2013-4545).
