How to fix?
curl to version 7.62.0-1 or higher.
Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream

Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.
A heap use-after-free flaw was found in curl versions from 7.59.0 through 7.61.1 in the code related to closing an easy handle. When closing and cleaning up an 'easy' handle in the
Curl_close() function, the library code first frees a struct (without nulling the pointer) and might then subsequently erroneously write to a struct field within that already freed struct.
