Curl NTLM Buffer Overflow

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3256
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is using a version of curl (or libcurl) that is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflows. To exploit, an attacker would have to set up a rogue web server that would reply with a malicious NTLM authentication request. Upon successful exploitation, the attacker would be able to execute arbitrary commands with the rights of the web server.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
