Debian Security Advisory DSA 919-2                                        Martin Schulze
Marth 10th, 2006

Package        : curl
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-4077
BugTraq ID     : 15756
Debian Bugs    : 342339 342696

The upstream developer of curl, a multi-protocol file transfer
library, informed us that the former correction to several off-by-one
errors are not sufficient.  For completeness please find the original
bug description below:

    Stefan Esser discovered several off-by-one errors that allows
    local users to trigger a buffer overflow and cause a denial of
    service or bypass PHP security restrictions via certain URLs.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 7.9.5-1woody2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 7.13.2-2sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 7.15.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcurl packages.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
