    Debian Bug     : 742728
    
    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in cURL, an URL transfer
    library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-0138
    
        Steve Holme discovered that libcurl can in some circumstances re-use
        the wrong connection when asked to do transfers using other
        protocols than HTTP and FTP.
    
    CVE-2014-0139
    
        Richard Moore from Westpoint Ltd. reported that libcurl does not
        behave compliant to RFC 2828 under certain conditions and
        incorrectly validates wildcard SSL certificates containing literal
        IP addresses.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.21.0-2.1+squeeze8.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.26.0-1+wheezy9.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.36.0-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.36.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
