Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

A flaw was found in curl before version 7.51. If cookie state is written into a cookie jar file that is later read back and used for subsequent requests, a malicious HTTP server can inject new cookies for arbitrary domains into said cookie jar.(CVE-2016-8615)

Impact

When a cURL connection stores a cookie state and is written into a cookie jar file that is later used for the subsequent cURL requests, a malicious web server can inject new cookies into the affected cookie jar for arbitrary domains. This exploit requires access to a malicious web server that serves cookies.

Solution
