    Package        : curl
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3613 CVE-2014-3620
    
    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in cURL, an URL transfer
    library. They can be use to leak cookie information:
    
    CVE-2014-3613
    
        By not detecting and rejecting domain names for partial literal IP
        addresses properly when parsing received HTTP cookies, libcurl can
        be fooled to both sending cookies to wrong sites and into allowing
        arbitrary sites to set cookies for others.
    
    CVE-2014-3620
    
        libcurl wrongly allows cookies to be set for Top Level Domains
        (TLDs), thus making them apply broader than cookies are allowed.
        This can allow arbitrary sites to set cookies that then would get
        sent to a different and unrelated site or domain.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.26.0-1+wheezy10.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.38.0-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.38.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
