Description Pedro Sampaio 2019-05-15 20:58:23 UTC
libcurl contains two integer overflows in the `curl_url_set()` function that
if triggered, can lead to a too small buffer allocation and a subsequent heap
buffer overflow.

Comment 2 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-05-20 05:45:25 UTC
This flaw only manifests itself on 32bit arches. 

There are two entry points to this issue, on 32 bit architectures.

By asking libcurl to parse a string, passing in a string longer than 2GB to this API: `curl_url_set(uh, CURLUPART_URL, "string", 0);` triggers the bug.

Asking libcurl to update a URL with a new string, and URL encoded it in the process, by passing in a string longer than 1.33GB to this API:
`curl_url_set(uh, CURLUPART_*, "string", CURLU_URLENCODE);` triggers the bug.

This bug was introduced in August 2018 in
[commit fb30ac5a2d](https://github.com/curl/curl/commit/fb30ac5a2d63773c52).
