The vulnerability is caused by connection->reqlen (in client.c: httpClientDiscardBody()) being a signed integer which can be overflowed turning it into a negative value which later leads to a segmentation fault in the call to memmove. References: http://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/10338 http://bugs.debian.org/560779 http://secunia.com/advisories/37607/ Could a CVE be assigned? Thanks in advance.
