USN-2097-1: curl vulnerability

3 February 2014

libcurl could be made to expose sensitive information.

Releases

Packages

  • curl - HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP client and client libraries

Details

Paras Sethia and Yehezkel Horowitz discovered that libcurl incorrectly
reused connections when NTLM authentication was being used. This could lead
to the use of unintended credentials, possibly exposing sensitive
information.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 13.10
Ubuntu 12.10
Ubuntu 12.04
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
