Two vulnerabilities were discovered in cURL, an URL transfer library.

- CVE-2018-1000005 Zhouyihai Ding discovered an out-of-bounds read in the code handling HTTP/2 trailers. This issue doesn't affect the oldstable distribution (jessie).

- CVE-2018-1000007 Craig de Stigter discovered that authentication data might be leaked to third parties when following HTTP redirects.


Upgrade the curl packages.
