Description

curl 7.1.1 to and including 7.75.0 is vulnerable to an "Exposure of Private Personal Information to an Unauthorized Actor" by leaking credentials in the HTTP Referer: header. libcurl does not strip off user credentials from the URL when automatically populating the Referer: HTTP request header field in outgoing HTTP requests, and therefore risks leaking sensitive data to the server that is the target of the second HTTP request.

Solution(s)

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