Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2399-1
November 10, 2014

curl vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS


curl could expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:
- curl: HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP client and client libraries


Symeon Paraschoudis discovered that curl incorrectly handled memory when
being used with CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS and curl_easy_duphandle(). This may
result in sensitive data being incorrectly sent to the remote server.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 14.10:
  libcurl3                        7.37.1-1ubuntu3.1
  libcurl3-gnutls                 7.37.1-1ubuntu3.1
  libcurl3-nss                    7.37.1-1ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  libcurl3                        7.35.0-1ubuntu2.2
  libcurl3-gnutls                 7.35.0-1ubuntu2.2
  libcurl3-nss                    7.35.0-1ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  libcurl3                        7.22.0-3ubuntu4.11
  libcurl3-gnutls                 7.22.0-3ubuntu4.11
  libcurl3-nss                    7.22.0-3ubuntu4.11

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
  libcurl3                        7.19.7-1ubuntu1.10
