A vulnerability has been found and corrected in curl :
lib/ssluse.c in cURL and libcurl 7.4 through 7.19.5, when OpenSSL is
used, does not properly handle a '�' character in a domain name in
the subject's Common Name (CN) field of an X.509 certificate, which
allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via
a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority,
a related issue to CVE-2009-2408 (CVE-2009-2417).
