Synopsis

The cURL program is a library and command-line tool for transferring data using various protocols, including HTTP, FTP, and LDAP. A vulnerable version of cURL was detected from the host.

A flaw was found in the way libcurl matched domains associated with cookies. This could lead to cURL sending the wrong cookie if only part of the domain name matched the domain associated with the cookie, disclosing the cookie to unrelated hosts. (CVE-2013-1944)
