Hello, I appreciate your support with the following:

As of the day of this post, our vulnerability detection tool has detected the curl 8.0.1 version as vulnerable on the network, which appears in Windows 2016-2019-2022 server operating systems in an integrated manner.

Currently, the updated version 8.4.0 is listed on the official curl page, but you couldn't find the appropriate method to update the curl component.

I would appreciate it if you could provide me with the correct method to update the component or if you have information about the OS patch/update that will fix this vulnerability.

It is important to indicate that the vulnerability was published since 09/2023/14. requesting at that time the update for version 8.3.0 and because an update has not been published until today, a new update of the component was released which is 8.4.0.

Thank you!
