Ubuntu Security Notice 3123-1 - It was discovered that curl incorrectly reused client certificates when built with NSS. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to hijack the authentication of a TLS connection. Nguyen Vu Hoang discovered that curl incorrectly handled escaping certain strings. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause curl to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

===========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 16.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in curl.

Software Description:
- curl: HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP client and client libraries

Details:

It was discovered that curl incorrectly reused client certificates when
built with NSS. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to hijack
the authentication of a TLS connection. (CVE-2016-7141)

Nguyen Vu Hoang discovered that curl incorrectly handled escaping certain
strings. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause curl to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-7167)

It was discovered that curl incorrectly handled storing cookies. A remote
attacker could possibly use this issue to inject cookies for arbitrary
domains in the cookie jar. (CVE-2016-8615)

It was discovered that curl incorrect handled case when comparing user
names and passwords. A remote attacker with knowledge of a case-insensitive
version of the correct password could possibly use this issue to cause
a connection to be reused. (CVE-2016-8616)

It was discovered that curl incorrect handled memory when encoding to
base64. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause curl to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-8617)

It was discovered that curl incorrect handled memory when preparing
formatted output. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
curl to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-8618)

It was discovered that curl incorrect handled memory when performing
Kerberos authentication. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
cause curl to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-8619)

Lu=E1=BA=ADt Nguy=E1=BB=85n discovered that curl incorrectly handled parsing globs. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause curl to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. This
issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.10.
(CVE-2016-8620)

Lu=E1=BA=ADt Nguy=E1=BB=85n discovered that curl incorrectly handled converting dates. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause curl to crash,
resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2016-8621)

It was discovered that curl incorrectly handled URL percent-encoding
decoding. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause curl to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-8622)

It was discovered that curl incorrectly handled shared cookies. A remote
server could possibly obtain incorrect cookies or other sensitive
information. (CVE-2016-8623)

Fernando Mu=C3=B1oz discovered that curl incorrect parsed certain URLs. A remote
attacker could possibly use this issue to trick curl into connecting to a
different host. (CVE-2016-8624)
