Wesley Miaw discovered that when deflate compression was used, libcurl
could call the registered write callback function with data exceeding
the documented limit. A malicious server could use this flaw to crash
an application using libcurl or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.
Note: This issue only affected applications using libcurl that rely on
the documented data size limit, and that copy the data to the
insufficiently sized buffer. (CVE-2010-0734)
All running applications using libcurl must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
