Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-04-12 13:10:08 UTC
From ${URL} :

A security flaw was found in the way the library of cURL, an utility for retrieval of files from 
remote servers, performed match of cookie domain names when making a decision if (previously stored 
cookies) should be sent to particular domain. Due to a bug in match function implementation, 
(formerly) the decision / match succeeded also in cases, where just suffix / certain part of the 
domain name matched the domain name, the current request originated from. A remote attacker could 
use this flaw to possibly hijack the user session of the victim by submitting a request containing 
a specially-crafted domain name.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, please say explicitly if the package is ready for the stabilization or not

I have tested, but this would be a rapid stabilization with all the dangers that entails.  Given that this is a minor security risk, I'd prefer to wait.

CVE-2013-1944 (
  The tailMatch function in cookie.c in cURL and libcurl before 7.30.0 does
  not properly match the path domain when sending cookies, which allows remote
  attackers to steal cookies via a matching suffix in the domain of a URL.
