VuXML IDDescription
04f29189-1a05-11e7-bc6e-b499baebfeafcURL -- potential memory disclosure

The cURL project reports:

There were two bugs in curl's parser for the command line option --write-out (or -w for short) that would skip the end of string zero byte if the string ended in a % (percent) or \ (backslash), and it would read beyond that buffer in the heap memory and it could then potentially output pieces of that memory to the terminal or the target file etc..

This flaw only exists in the command line tool.

We are not aware of any exploit of this flaw.

42880202-c81c-11e6-a9a5-b499baebfeafcURL -- buffer overflow

The cURL project reports:

printf floating point buffer overflow

libcurl's implementation of the printf() functions triggers a buffer overflow when doing a large floating point output. The bug occurs when the conversion outputs more than 255 bytes.

2438d4af-1538-11e5-a106-3c970e169bc2cURL -- Multiple Vulnerability

cURL reports:

libcurl can wrongly send HTTP credentials when re-using connections.

libcurl allows applications to set credentials for the upcoming transfer with HTTP Basic authentication, like with CURLOPT_USERPWD for example. Name and password. Just like all other libcurl options the credentials are sticky and are kept associated with the "handle" until something is made to change the situation.

Further, libcurl offers a curl_easy_reset() function that resets a handle back to its pristine state in terms of all settable options. A reset is of course also supposed to clear the credentials. A reset is typically used to clear up the handle and prepare it for a new, possibly unrelated, transfer.

Within such a handle, libcurl can also store a set of previous connections in case a second transfer is requested to a host name for which an existing connection is already kept alive.

With this flaw present, using the handle even after a reset would make libcurl accidentally use those credentials in a subsequent request if done to the same host name and connection as was previously accessed.

An example case would be first requesting a password protected resource from one section of a web site, and then do a second request of a public resource from a completely different part of the site without authentication. This flaw would then inadvertently leak the credentials in the second request.

libcurl can get tricked by a malicious SMB server to send off data it did not intend to.

In libcurl's state machine function handling the SMB protocol (smb_request_state()), two length and offset values are extracted from data that has arrived over the network, and those values are subsequently used to figure out what data range to send back.

The values are used and trusted without boundary checks and are just assumed to be valid. This allows carefully handcrafted packages to trick libcurl into responding and sending off data that was not intended. Or just crash if the values cause libcurl to access invalid memory.

b018121b-7a4b-11e6-bf52-b499baebfeafcURL -- Escape and unescape integer overflows

The cURL project reports

The four libcurl functions curl_escape(), curl_easy_escape(), curl_unescape and curl_easy_unescape perform string URL percent escaping and unescaping. They accept custom string length inputs in signed integer arguments.

The provided string length arguments were not properly checked and due to arithmetic in the functions, passing in the length 0xffffffff (2^32-1 or UINT_MAX or even just -1) would end up causing an allocation of zero bytes of heap memory that curl would attempt to write gigabytes of data into.

ccace707-a8d8-11e7-ac58-b499baebfeafcURL -- out of bounds read

The cURL project reports:

FTP PWD response parser out of bounds read

libcurl may read outside of a heap allocated buffer when doing FTP.

When libcurl connects to an FTP server and successfully logs in (anonymous or not), it asks the server for the current directory with the PWD command. The server then responds with a 257 response containing the path, inside double quotes. The returned path name is then kept by libcurl for subsequent uses.

Due to a flaw in the string parser for this directory name, a directory name passed like this but without a closing double quote would lead to libcurl not adding a trailing NUL byte to the buffer holding the name. When libcurl would then later access the string, it could read beyond the allocated heap buffer and crash or wrongly access data beyond the buffer, thinking it was part of the path.

A malicious server could abuse this fact and effectively prevent libcurl-based clients to work with it - the PWD command is always issued on new FTP connections and the mistake has a high chance of causing a segfault.

27f742f6-03f4-11e5-aab1-d050996490d0cURL -- sensitive HTTP server headers also sent to proxies

cURL reports:

libcurl provides applications a way to set custom HTTP headers to be sent to the server by using CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER. A similar option is available for the curl command-line tool with the '--header' option.

When the connection passes through an HTTP proxy the same set of headers is sent to the proxy as well by default. While this is by design, it has not necessarily been clear nor understood by application programmers.
