Debian DLA-211-1 : curl security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83143

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in cURL, an URL transfer library :

CVE-2015-3143

NTLM-authenticated connections could be wrongly reused for requests without any credentials set, leading to HTTP requests being sent over the connection authenticated as a different user. This is similar to the issue fixed in DSA-2849-1.

CVE-2015-3148

When doing HTTP requests using the Negotiate authentication method along with NTLM, the connection used would not be marked as authenticated, making it possible to reuse it and send requests for one user over the connection authenticated as a different user.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
