Description Martin Prpič 2017-02-15 11:50:28 UTC
It was found that the fix for CVE-2015-3148 did not correctly backported to curl in RHEL 6 because it did not reflect the fact that the HAVE_GSSAPI define was meanwhile substituted by USE_HTTP_NEGOTIATE.

The original issue was described as:

It was discovered that libcurl could incorrectly reuse Negotiate authenticated HTTP connections for subsequent requests. If an application using libcurl established a Negotiate authenticated HTTP connection to a server and sent subsequent requests with different credentials, the connection could be re-used with the initial set of credentials instead of using the new ones.

This issue was introduced in RHEL 6.7 and affects RHEL 6 curl only.
