AlmaLinux 8 : curl (ALSA-2021:1610)


The remote AlmaLinux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALSA-2021:1610 advisory. - Due to use of a dangling pointer, libcurl 7.29.0 through 7.71.1 can use the wrong connection when sending data. (CVE-2020-8231) - A malicious server can use the FTP PASV response to trick curl 7.73.0 and earlier into connecting back to a given IP address and port, and this way potentially make curl extract information about services that are otherwise private and not disclosed, for example doing port scanning and service banner extractions. (CVE-2020-8284) - curl 7.21.0 to and including 7.73.0 is vulnerable to uncontrolled recursion due to a stack overflow issue in FTP wildcard match parsing. (CVE-2020-8285) - curl 7.41.0 through 7.73.0 is vulnerable to an improper check for certificate revocation due to insufficient verification of the OCSP response. (CVE-2020-8286) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
