Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: cURL: NTLM username stack overflow (GLSA 200510-19)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: October 22, 2005
Bug(s): #109097
ID: 200510-19

Synopsis

cURL is vulnerable to a buffer overflow which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

cURL is a command line tool and library for transferring files via many different protocols. It supports NTLM authentication to retrieve files from Windows-based systems.

Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/curl
Vulnerable: < 7.15.0
Unaffected: >= 7.15.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

iDEFENSE reported that insufficient bounds checking on a memcpy() of the supplied NTLM username can result in a stack overflow.

Impact

A remote attacker could setup a malicious server and entice an user to connect to it using a cURL client, potentially leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running cURL.

Workaround

Disable NTLM authentication by not using the --anyauth or --ntlm options when using cURL (the command line version). Workarounds for programs that use the cURL library depend on the configuration options presented by those programs.

Resolution

All cURL users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/curl-7.15.0"
