Debian DLA-1121-1 : curl security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103682
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there was a out-of-bounds read vulnerability in curl, a command-line and library for transferring data over HTTP/FTP, etc. A malicious FTP server could abuse this to prevent curl-based clients from interacting with it.
See <https://curl.haxx.se/docs/adv_20171004.html> for more details.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in curl version 7.26.0-1+wheezy21.
We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
