Debian Security Advisory                                            Wichert Akkerman

Package        : curl and curl-ssl
Problem type   : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no

The version of curl as distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 had a bug
in the error logging code: when it created an error message it failed to
check the size of the buffer allocated for storing the message. This
could be exploited by the remote machine by returning an invalid
response to a request from curl which overflows the error buffer and
trick curl into executing arbitrary code.

Debian ships with two versions of curl: the normal curl package, and the
crypto-enabled curl-ssl package. This bug has been fixed in curl version
6.0-1.1 and curl-ssl version 6.0-1.2 .

We recommend you upgrade your curl or curl-ssl package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  Slink did not contain curl or curl-ssl.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ---------------------------------

  Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc. At
  this moment packages for m68k are not yet available; they will later be
  announce on .
