Debian DSA-3240-1 : curl - security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83146
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that cURL, an URL transfer library, if configured to use a proxy server with the HTTPS protocol, by default could send to the proxy the same HTTP headers it sends to the destination server, possibly leaking sensitive information.
SolutionUpgrade the curl packages.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 7.38.0-4+deb8u2.
