How to fix?

Upgrade Oracle:8 libcurl to version 0:7.61.1-22.el8_6.4 or higher.
This issue was patched in ELSA-2022-6159.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream libcurl package and not the libcurl package as distributed by Oracle. See How to fix? for Oracle:8 relevant fixed versions and status.

When curl < 7.84.0 does FTP transfers secured by krb5, it handles message verification failures wrongly. This flaw makes it possible for a Man-In-The-Middle attack to go unnoticed and even allows it to inject data to the client.
