The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
It was discovered that curl did not enforce any restrictions when
following URL redirects. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a URL to an untrusted server, an attacker could use
redirects to gain access to arbitrary files. This update changes curl
behavior to prevent following 'file' URLs after a redirect.
Update the affected packages.
