curl vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in curl.

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

Details:

Jay Satiro discovered that curl incorrectly handled hostnames when using a
SOCKS5 proxy. In environments where curl is configured to use a SOCKS5
proxy, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary
code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 23.04.
(CVE-2023-38545)

It was discovered that curl incorrectly handled cookies when an application
duplicated certain handles. A local attacker could possibly create a cookie
file and inject arbitrary cookies into subsequent connections.
(CVE-2023-38546)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 23.04:
   curl                            7.88.1-8ubuntu2.3
   libcurl3-gnutls                 7.88.1-8ubuntu2.3
   libcurl3-nss                    7.88.1-8ubuntu2.3
   libcurl4                        7.88.1-8ubuntu2.3

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
   curl                            7.81.0-1ubuntu1.14
   libcurl3-gnutls                 7.81.0-1ubuntu1.14
   libcurl3-nss                    7.81.0-1ubuntu1.14
   libcurl4                        7.81.0-1ubuntu1.14

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
   curl                            7.68.0-1ubuntu2.20
   libcurl3-gnutls                 7.68.0-1ubuntu2.20
   libcurl3-nss                    7.68.0-1ubuntu2.20
