EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : curl (EulerOS-SA-2021-2457)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 153633

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the curl packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- curl 7.1.1 to and including 7.75.0 is vulnerable to an 'Exposure of Private Personal Information to an Unauthorized Actor' by leaking credentials in the HTTP Referer: header. libcurl does not strip off user credentials from the URL when automatically populating the Referer: HTTP request header field in outgoing HTTP requests, and therefore risks leaking sensitive data to the server that is the target of the second HTTP request. (CVE-2021-22876)

- libcurl keeps previously used connections in a connection pool for subsequenttransfers to reuse, if one of them matches the setup.Due to errors in the logic, the config matching function did not take 'issuercert' into account and it compared the involved paths *case insensitively*,which could lead to libcurl reusing wrong connections.File paths are, or can be, case sensitive on many systems but not all, and caneven vary depending on used file systems.The comparison also didn't include the 'issuer cert' which a transfer can setto qualify how to verify the server certificate. (CVE-2021-22924)

- curl supports the `-t` command line option, known as `CURLOPT_TELNETOPTIONS`in libcurl. This rarely used option is used to send variable=content pairs toTELNET servers.Due to flaw in the option parser for sending `NEW_ENV` variables, libcurlcould be made to pass on uninitialized data from a stack based buffer to theserver. Therefore potentially revealing sensitive internal information to theserver using a clear- text network protocol.This could happen because curl did not call and use sscanf() correctly whenparsing the string provided by the application. (CVE-2021-22925)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected curl packages.
