    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8150
    
    Andrey Labunets of Facebook discovered that cURL, an URL transfer
    library, fails to properly handle URLs with embedded end-of-line
    characters. An attacker able to make an application using libcurl to
    access a specially crafted URL via an HTTP proxy could use this flaw to
    do additional requests in a way that was not intended, or insert
    additional request headers into the request.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.26.0-1+wheezy12.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem will be
    fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.38.0-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
