Description

curl and libcurl before 7.57.0 on 32-bit platforms allow attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact because too little memory is allocated for interfacing to an SSL library.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-curl
  • suse-upgrade-libcurl-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libcurl4
  • suse-upgrade-libcurl4-32bit
