Description:
Previous versions of curl do not properly restrict the amount of
callback data sent to an application that requests automatic
decompression, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (application crash) or have unspecified other impact by
sending crafted compressed data to an application that relies on the
intended data-length limit. This has been fixed.
