    Unhappy Why is curl/libcurl not being updated?

    I've been starting to use libcurl to write some simple programs when I realized that the libcurl version that is integrated into Ubuntu 12.04 is way outdated, and contains several known vulnerabilities. The lastest version that is out (libcurl/7.34.0) does not have any known vulnerabilities yet.
    Code:
    $ cat test.cpp 
    #include <iostream>
    #include <curl/curl.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[]){
        std::cout << curl_version() << std::endl;
        return 0;
    }
    $ g++ -o test test.cpp -lcurl
    $ ./test | grep -o 'libcurl/\([^ ]\+\) '
    libcurl/7.22.0 
    $ lsb_release -r
    Release:    12.04
