Description

infamous41md@hotpop.com reported a vulnerability in libcurl, the HTTP/FTP retrieval library. This library is used by lots of programs, including YaST2.

The NTLM authorization in curl had a buffer overflow in the base64 decoding which allows a remote attacker using a prepared remote server to execute code for the user using curl.

The Kerberos authorization has a similar bug, but is not compiled in on SUSE Linux.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
