    Package        : curl

    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-2174
    
    Timo Sirainen discovered that cURL, an URL transfer library, is prone to
    a heap overflow vulnerability due to bad checking of the input data in
    the curl_easy_unescape function.
    
    The curl command line tool is not affected by this problem as it doesn't
    use the curl_easy_unescape function.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.21.0-2.1+squeeze4.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.26.0-1+wheezy3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.31.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
