    Debian: DSA-2271-1: curl security update

    Richard Silverman discovered that when doing GSSAPI authentication, libcurl unconditionally performs credential delegation. This hands the server a copy of the client's security credentials, allowing the server to impersonate the client to any other using the same GSSAPI mechanism.

    Richard Silverman discovered that when doing GSSAPI authentication, libcurl
    unconditionally performs credential delegation. This hands the server a copy of
    the client's security credentials, allowing the server to impersonate the
    client to any other using the same GSSAPI mechanism.
    This is obviously a very sensitive operation, which should only be done when
    the user explicitly so directs.
