==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-726-2             March 04, 2009
curl regression
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
  libcurl3                        7.18.2-1ubuntu4.3
  libcurl3-gnutls                 7.18.2-1ubuntu4.3

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-726-1 fixed a vulnerability in curl. Due to an incomplete fix, a regression
was introduced in Ubuntu 8.10 that caused certain types of URLs to fail. This
update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that curl did not enforce any restrictions when following
 URL redirects. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a URL to
 an untrusted server, an attacker could use redirects to gain access to abitrary
 files. This update changes curl behavior to prevent following "file" URLs after
 a redirect.

Updated packages for Ubuntu 8.10:
