The Windows binaries of "curl", built by the author and maintainer of
curl and available for download at <http://curl.haxx.se/download.html>
are linked with zlib 1.2.2 <http://www.zlib.net/>, which is but
vulnerable to CAN-2005-2096:

| Features: Largefile NTLM SSPI libz

A scan with ClamAV against the patterns published by Florian Weimer
at <http://www.enyo.de/fw/security/zlib-fingerprint/> verifies the
presence of the patterns of the vulnerable code:

| x:\>clamscan --database CAN-2005-2096.db
