Description Vincent Danen 2009-02-12 17:54:11 UTC
When handling automatic redirects, libcurl does not differentiate between different target URLS, and will follow to any new URL that it understands.  This includes the "file://" URL type, so a remote server can force a local libcurl-using application to read a local file instead of the remote one.  This can lead to these applications exposing local files they are not meant to expose.

Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2009-02-12 17:57:14 UTC
This issue affects RHEL2.1, RHEL3, RHEL4, RHEL5, Fedora 9, and Fedora 10.
