Description:
Previous versions of curl accept arbitrary location values for
redirects when CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION is enabled. This may allow
remote HTTP servers to trigger arbitrary requests to intranet
servers, read or overwrite arbitrary local files, or execute
arbitrary commands. This update prohibits these redirects.
