cURL provides the libcurl library and a command line tool for downloading
files from servers using various protocols, including HTTP, FTP, and LDAP.

the client's credentials and impersonate that client to other servers that

Users of curl should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications using
libcurl must be restarted for the update to take effect.
