Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream
Remediation section below for
Alpine:3.10 relevant versions.
libcurl versions from 7.34.0 to before 7.64.0 are vulnerable to a heap out-of-bounds read in the code handling the end-of-response for SMTP. If the buffer passed to
smtp_endofresp() isn't NUL terminated and contains no character ending the parsed number, and
len is set to 5, then the
strtol() call reads beyond the allocated buffer. The read contents will not be returned to the caller.
curl to version 7.64.0-r0 or higher.
