    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-8816 CVE-2017-8817
    
    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in cURL, an URL transfer library.
    
    CVE-2017-8816
    
        Alex Nichols discovered a buffer overrun flaw in the NTLM authentication
        code which can be triggered on 32bit systems where an integer overflow
        might occur when calculating the size of a memory allocation.
    
    CVE-2017-8817
    
        Fuzzing by the OSS-Fuzz project led to the discovery of a read out of
        bounds flaw in the FTP wildcard function in libcurl. A malicious server
        could redirect a libcurl-based client to an URL using a wildcard pattern,
        triggering the out-of-bound read.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 7.38.0-4+deb8u8.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.52.1-5+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
