Security issue fixed :

- CVE-2016-9586: libcurl printf floating point buffer
overflow (bsc#1015332)

- CVE-2017-7407: The ourWriteOut function in
tool_writeout.c in curl might have allowed physically
proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from
process memory in opportunistic circumstances by reading
a workstation screen during use of a --write-out
argument ending in a '%' character, which lead to a
heap-based buffer over-read (bsc#1032309).

With this release new default ciphers are active (SUSE_DEFAULT,
bsc#1027712).

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
