More information:
  • CVE-2017-8817

    Fuzzing by the OSS-Fuzz project led to the discovery of a read out of bounds flaw in the FTP wildcard function in libcurl. A malicious server could redirect a libcurl-based client to an URL using a wildcard pattern, triggering the out-of-bound read.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 7.26.0-1+wheezy23.

We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
