Not sure what the WP team wants to do with this bug since it's not in WP core but in curl installed on the system, but there's a bug in the latest curl (7.67.0) which breaks Facebook oEmbeds because of an SSL issue.

See https://github.com/curl/curl/pull/4623#issuecomment-562620880 for more info. It should be fixed in the upcoming release of curl 7.68.0.

Took us a while to figure out why they stopped working - the error we finally dug up was:

failed curl response: code: http_request_failed message: cURL error 56: OpenSSL SSL_read: Success

Since we already figured out the case, I'm mostly making this ticket to help anyone who has or will run into the same issue in the near future.
