    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2399-1
    November 10, 2014
    
    curl vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.10
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    curl could expose sensitive information over the network.
    
    Software Description:
    - curl: HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP client and client libraries
    
    Details:
    
    Symeon Paraschoudis discovered that curl incorrectly handled memory when
    being used with CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS and curl_easy_duphandle(). This may
    result in sensitive data being incorrectly sent to the remote server.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.10:
      libcurl3                        7.37.1-1ubuntu3.1
      libcurl3-gnutls                 7.37.1-1ubuntu3.1
      libcurl3-nss                    7.37.1-1ubuntu3.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libcurl3                        7.35.0-1ubuntu2.2

      libcurl3-nss                    7.35.0-1ubuntu2.2
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libcurl3                        7.22.0-3ubuntu4.11
      libcurl3-gnutls                 7.22.0-3ubuntu4.11
      libcurl3-nss                    7.22.0-3ubuntu4.11
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      libcurl3                        7.19.7-1ubuntu1.10
