    Package        : curl
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3707
    
    Symeon Paraschoudis discovered that the curl_easy_duphandle() function
    in cURL, an URL transfer library, has a bug that can lead to libcurl
    eventually sending off sensitive data that was not intended for sending,
    while performing a HTTP POST operation.
    
    This bug requires CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS and curl_easy_duphandle() to be
    used in that order, and then the duplicate handle must be used to
    perform the HTTP POST. The curl command line tool is not affected by
    this problem as it does not use this sequence.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.26.0-1+wheezy11.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem will be
    fixed in version 7.38.0-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.38.0-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
