Ubuntu 17.04 : curl vulnerability (USN-3262-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99582
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionIt was discovered that curl incorrectly handled client certificates when resuming a TLS session. A remote attacker could use this to hijack a previously authenticated connection.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
