    Yamada Yasuharu discovered that cURL, an URL transfer library, is
    vulnerable to expose potentially sensitive information when doing
    requests across domains with matching tails. Due to a bug in the
    tailmatch function when matching domain names, it was possible that
    cookies set for a domain 'ample.com' could accidentally also be sent
    by libcurl when communicating with 'example.com'.
    
    Both curl the command line tool and applications using the libcurl
    library are vulnerable.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.21.0-2.1+squeeze3.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.26.0-1+wheezy2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.29.0-2.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
