Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201803-17
Date : 2018-03-19
CVE-ID : CVE-2018-1000120 CVE-2018-1000121 CVE-2018-1000122
Package : libcurl-compat
Type : multiple issues
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-655
The package libcurl-compat before version 7.59.0-1 is vulnerable to
multiple issues including denial of service and information disclosure.
Upgrade to 7.59.0-1.
# pacman -Syu "libcurl-compat>=7.59.0-1"
The problems have been fixed upstream in version 7.59.0.
- CVE-2018-1000120 (denial of service)
It was found that libcurl did not safely parse FTP URLs when using the
CURLOPT_FTP_FILEMETHOD method. An attacker, able to provide a specially
crafted FTP URL to an application using libcurl, could write a NULL
byte at an arbitrary location, resulting in a crash, or an unspecified
- CVE-2018-1000121 (denial of service)
A NULL pointer dereference exists in the LDAP code of curl >= 7.21.0
and < curl 7.59.0, allowing an attacker to cause a denial of service.
libcurl-using applications that allow LDAP URLs, or that allow
redirects to LDAP URLs could be made to crash by a malicious server.
- CVE-2018-1000122 (information disclosure)
A buffer over-read exists in curl >= 7.20.0 and < 7.59.0 in the
RTSP+RTP handling code that allows an attacker to cause a denial of
service or information leakage. When asked to transfer an RTSP URL,
curl could calculate a wrong data length to copy from the read buffer.
The memcpy call would copy data from the heap following the buffer to a
storage area that would subsequently be delivered to the application
(if it didn't cause a crash). This could lead to information leakage or
a denial of service for the application if the server offering the RTSP
data can trigger this.
A remote attacker is able to crash the application or disclose
sensitive information on the affected host.
