[slackware-security]  curl (SSA:2009-226-01)

New curl packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0,
12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix a security issue.

For more information, see:
  http://curl.haxx.se/docs/security.html
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2417


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/curl-7.19.6-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  This update fixes a security issue where a zero byte embedded in an SSL
  or TLS certificate could fool cURL into validating the security of a
  connection to a system that the certificate was not issued for.  It has
  been reported that at least one Certificate Authority allowed such
  certificates to be issued.
  For more information, see:
    http://curl.haxx.se/docs/security.html
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2417
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
