    Wesley Miaw discovered that libcurl, a multi-protocol file transfer library, is prone to a buffer overflow via the callback function when an application relies on libcurl to automatically uncompress data. Note that this only affects applications that trust libcurl's maximum limit

    Package        : curl
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CVE-2010-0734
    
    Wesley Miaw discovered that libcurl, a multi-protocol file transfer
    library, is prone to a buffer overflow via the callback function when
    an application relies on libcurl to automatically uncompress data. Note
    that this only affects applications that trust libcurl's maximum limit
    for a fixed buffer size and do not perform any sanity checks themselves.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.18.2-8lenny4.
    
    Due to a problem with the archive software, we are unable to release all
    architectures simultaneously. Binaries for the hppa, ia64, mips, mipsel
    and s390 architectures will be provided once they are available.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 7.20.0-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl 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.
