Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2018-01-25 15:30:45 UTC
CVE-2018-1000005 (
  libcurl 7.49.0 to and including 7.57.0 contains an out bounds read in code
  handling HTTP/2 trailers. It was reported
  ( that reading an HTTP/2 trailer
  could mess up future trailers since the stored size was one byte less than
  required. The problem is that the code that creates HTTP/1-like headers from
  the HTTP/2 trailer data once appended a string like `:` to the target
  buffer, while this was recently changed to `: ` (a space was added after the
  colon) but the following math wasn't updated correspondingly. When accessed,
  the data is read out of bounds and causes either a crash or that the (too
  large) data gets passed to client write. This could lead to a
  denial-of-service situation or an information disclosure if someone has a
  service that echoes back or uses the trailers for something.

CVE-2018-1000007 (
  libcurl 7.1 through 7.57.0 might accidentally leak authentication data to
  third parties. When asked to send custom headers in its HTTP requests,
  libcurl will send that set of headers first to the host in the initial URL
  but also, if asked to follow redirects and a 30X HTTP response code is
  returned, to the host mentioned in URL in the `Location:` response header
  value. Sending the same set of headers to subsequest hosts is in particular
  a problem for applications that pass on custom `Authorization:` headers, as
  this header often contains privacy sensitive information or data that could
  allow others to impersonate the libcurl-using client's request.
