High Nessus Plugin ID 93565
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that the four four libcurl functions curl_escape(), curl_easy_escape(), curl_unescape and curl_easy_unescape accepted negative sting length inputs.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 7.26.0-1+wheezy16.
We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
