NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream curl package. See Remediation section below for Alpine:3.10 relevant versions.

A flaw was found in curl before version 7.51. If cookie state is written into a cookie jar file that is later read back and used for subsequent requests, a malicious HTTP server can inject new cookies for arbitrary domains into said cookie jar.

Remediation

Upgrade Alpine:3.10 curl to version 7.51.0 or higher.
