Description

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

- CVE-2018-16890 Wenxiang Qian of Tencent Blade Team discovered that the function handling incoming NTLM type-2 messages does not validate incoming data correctly and is subject to an integer overflow vulnerability, which could lead to an out-of-bounds buffer read.
