    Version        : 7.52.1-5+deb9u11
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-8177
    A vulnerbailty was found in curl, a command line tool for transferring
    data with URL syntax.
    When using when using -J (--remote-header-name) and -i (--include) in
    the same command line, a malicious server could force curl to overwrite
    the contents of local files with incoming HTTP headers.
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    We recommend that you upgrade your curl packages.
    For the detailed security status of curl please refer to
