Summary
curl vulnerabilities
Details

USN-5079-1 fixed vulnerabilities in curl. One of the fixes introduced a regression on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

It was discovered that curl incorrect handled memory when sending data to an MQTT server. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause curl to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-22945)

Patrick Monnerat discovered that curl incorrectly handled upgrades to TLS. When receiving certain responses from servers, curl would continue without TLS even when the option to require a successful upgrade to TLS was specified. (CVE-2021-22946)

Patrick Monnerat discovered that curl incorrectly handled responses received before STARTTLS. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to inject responses and intercept communications. (CVE-2021-22947)
