    Updated curl packages fix security vulnerabilities:
    
    libcurl can be tricked to prepend a part of the password to the host name
    before it resolves it, potentially leaking the partial password over the
    network and to the DNS server(s) (CVE-2020-8169).
    
    curl can be tricked by a malicious server to overwrite a local file when
    using -J (--remote-header-name) and -i (--include) in the same command
    line (CVE-2020-8177).
    
    The curl package has been updated to version 7.71.0, fixing these issues
    and other bugs.
