A bug in some versions of curl would cause it to incorrectly parse error responses from FTP servers. A malicious FTP server could use this bug to crash its client.

The packages listed in the previous errata (RHBA-2000:092-01) should not be used since the "-c" option does not function properly. Please use the packages listed in this updated errata instead.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed ( for more info):

20337 - -c with FTP is broken in curl 7.3

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Powertools 6.2:





Red Hat Powertools 7.0:
