Updated socat package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 16 Feb 2014
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2014-0019

Description

Due to a missing check in socat before 2.0.0-b7 during assembly of the HTTP
request line, a long target server name ( in the documentation) in
the PROXY-CONNECT address can cause a stack buffer overrun.  Exploitation
requires that the attacker is able to provide the target server name to the
PROXY-CONNECT address in the command line. This can happen, for example, in
scripts that receive data from untrusted sources (CVE-2014-0019).
