Synopsis
========

A coding error has been found in cURL, causing the TLS Certificate
Status Request extension check to always return true.

Background
==========

cURL is a tool and libcurl is a library for transferring data with URL
syntax.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-misc/curl < 7.53.0 >= 7.53.0

Description
===========

cURL and applications linked against libcurl support "OCSP stapling",
also known as the TLS Certificate Status Request extension (using the
CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYSTATUS option). When telling cURL to use this
feature, it uses that TLS extension to ask for a fresh proof of the
server's certificate's validity. If the server doesn't support the
extension, or fails to provide said proof, cURL is expected to return
an error.
Due to a coding mistake, the code that checks for a test success or
failure, ends up always thinking there's valid proof, even when there
is none or if the server doesn't support the TLS extension in question.

Impact
======

Due to the error, a user maybe does not detect when a server's
certificate goes invalid or otherwise be mislead that the server is in
a better shape than it is in reality.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All cURL users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/curl-7.53.0"
