		Enea Linux Security Advisory

Product/package: Enea Linux 7.0: (curl 7.53.1)
Severity: Medium
Architecture: all
CVE Name: CVE-2018-1000005

This security update fixes HTTP/2 trailer out-of-bounds read vulnerability 
in cURL version 7.53.1.

libcurl 7.49.0 to and including 7.57.0 contains an out bounds read in
code handling HTTP/2 trailers. It was reported (https://github.com/
curl/curl/pull/2231) that reading an HTTP/2 trailer could mess up future
trailers since the stored size was one byte less than required. The
problem is that the code that creates HTTP/1-like headers from the
HTTP/2 trailer data once appended a string like `:` to the target
buffer, while this was recently changed to `: ` (a space was added after
the colon) but the following math wasn't updated correspondingly. When
accessed, the data is read out of bounds and causes either a crash or
that the (too large) data gets passed to client write. This could lead
to a denial-of-service situation or an information disclosure if someone
has a service that echoes back or uses the trailers for something.
