    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-0755
    
    Isaac Boukris discovered that cURL, an URL transfer library, reused
    NTLM-authenticated proxy connections without properly making sure that
    the connection was authenticated with the same credentials as set for
    the new transfer. This could lead to HTTP requests being sent over the
    connection authenticated as a different user.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.38.0-4+deb8u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.47.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
