Summary

The remote host is missing an update to curl announced via advisory DSA 919-2. The upstream developer of curl, a multi-protocol file transfer library, informed us that the former correction to several off-by-one errors are not sufficient. For completeness please find the original bug description below: Stefan Esser discovered several off-by-one errors that allows local users to trigger a buffer overflow and cause a denial of service or bypass PHP security restrictions via certain URLs. For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 7.9.5-1woody2.

Solution

Solution

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 7.13.2-2sarge5. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 7.15.1-1. We recommend that you upgrade your libcurl packages. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%20919-2
