Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in the curl_easy_unescape function in lib/escape.c in cURL and libcurl 7.7 through 7.30.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted string ending in a "%" (percent) character.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-curl
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-curl-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libcurl
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libcurl-devel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
