Overview

curl is a command line tool and library for transferring data with URL syntax, supporting DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, GOPHER, GOPHERS, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, MQTT, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, TELNET and TFTP. libcurl offers a myriad of powerful features.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cleartext Transmission of Sensitive Information due to HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) support. It can be instructed to use HTTPS directly instead of using an insecure clear text HTTP step even when HTTP is provided in the URL.
