Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in curl.

Software Description:
- curl: HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP client and client libraries

Details:

Harry Sintonen and Tomas Hoger discovered that curl incorrectly handled
TELNET connections when the -t option was used on the command line.
Uninitialized data possibly containing sensitive information could be sent
to the remote server, contrary to expectations. (CVE-2021-22898,
