    Debian Bug     : 658276
    
    cURL is a command-line tool and library for transferring data with URL
    syntax.  It was discovered that the countermeasures against the
    Dai/Rogaway chosen-plaintext attack on SSL/TLS (CVE-2011-3389,
    "BEAST") cause interoperability issues with some server
    implementations.  This update ads the the CURLOPT_SSL_OPTIONS and
    CURLSSLOPT_ALLOW_BEAST options to the library, and the
    - --ssl-allow-beast option to the "curl" program.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.21.0-2.1+squeeze2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
