Telnet is an extremely vulnerable protocol. It must be disable.
If you need it, you can always install libcurl-full.
I wonder, do you have the "telnet" program installed on your machine(s)?
I'd be surprised if anyone using curl's telnet *client* support wasn't
aware that it was sending plain text over the network, possibly
including any credentials that were being used. A telnet client is,
however, a very useful debugging tool for various other network
protocols, not just the telnet protocol itself. That is, I believe,
what Alex was advocating for, since the curl tool's presence is
well-nigh universal and hence always available for debugging some
