Title: cURL: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201406-21)
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: June 22, 2014
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in cURL, the worst of
which could lead to man-in-the-middle attacks.
cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax,
supporting numerous protocols.
Vulnerable: < 7.36.0
Unaffected: >= 7.36.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in cURL. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could cause a man-in-the-middle attack via a crafted
certificate issued by a legitimate certification authority. Furthermore,
a context-dependent attacker may be able to bypass security restrictions
by connecting as other users.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All cURL users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/curl-7.36.0"
