Security database references:

It was discovered that libcurl built on top of NSS (Network Security Services) incorrectly re-used client certificates if a certificate from file was used for one TLS connection but no certificate set for a subsequent TLS connection.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, this problem has been fixed in version 7.26.0-1+wheezy15.

We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
