The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- make CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT work again with threaded resolver (#1172572)

- allow to use TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 (#1153814)

- disable libcurl-level downgrade to SSLv3 (#1166567)

- fix handling of CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS in curl_easy_duphandle (CVE-2014-3707)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
