CVE-2017-7407

Priority
Negligible
Description
The ourWriteOut function in tool_writeout.c in curl 7.53.1 might allow
physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from process
memory in opportunistic circumstances by reading a workstation screen
during use of a --write-out argument ending in a '%' character, which leads
to a heap-based buffer over-read.
