Description

cURL and libcurl 7.10.6 through 7.34.0, when more than one authentication method is enabled, re-uses NTLM connections, which might allow context-dependent attackers to authenticate as other users via a request.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libcurl3
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libcurl3-gnutls
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libcurl3-nss

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.
