NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream curl package and not the curl package as distributed by Debian:11. See How to fix? for Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.

The sanitize_cookie_path function in cURL and libcurl 7.31.0 through 7.41.0 does not properly calculate an index, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and crash) or possibly have other unspecified impact via a cookie path containing only a double-quote character.
