Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in cURL, an URL transfer
library.

CVE-2019-5436

    A heap buffer overflow in the TFTP receiving code was discovered,
    which could allow DoS or arbitrary code execution. This only affects
    the oldstable distribution (stretch).

CVE-2019-5481

    Thomas Vegas discovered a double-free in the FTP-KRB code, triggered
    by a malicious server sending a very large data block.

CVE-2019-5482

    Thomas Vegas discovered a heap buffer overflow that could be
    triggered when a small non-default TFTP blocksize is used.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
in version 7.52.1-5+deb9u10.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 7.64.0-4+deb10u1.
