curl exit code -9

From the logs of a service that executes curl, I can see a case where curl
exited with code -9 and with empty stdout and stderr. What does exit code
-9 mean? Is it CURLE_REMOTE_ACCESS_DENIED? If so, why is it negative? Exit
codes are usually positive.

This is the curl version:

$ /usr/bin/curl --version
curl 7.29.0 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.29.0 NSS/3.36 zlib/1.2.7
libidn/1.28 libssh2/1.4.3
Protocols: dict file ftp ftps gopher http https imap imaps ldap ldaps pop3
pop3s rtsp scp sftp smtp smtps telnet tftp
Features: AsynchDNS GSS-Negotiate IDN IPv6 Largefile NTLM NTLM_WB SSL libz

Thank you, any help is appreciated.
