- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : curl
CVE ID : CVE-2023-23916

Patrick Monnerat discovered that Curl's support for "chained" HTTP
compression algorithms was susceptible to denial of service.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in
version 7.74.0-1.3+deb11u7. This update also fixes a regression in
the previously released fix for CVE-2022-27774.

We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
