Subject: CVE Request - aria2 - 1.6.2

Hello Steve, vendors,

   aria2 upstream has released latest 1.6.2 release, fixing one DoS issue. From
1.6.2 Release Note:

This release fixes segmentation fault error if URI to download
contains printf format string and logging is enabled

* Fixed the bug that causes segmentation fault if
    req->getCurrentUrl() contains printf format string such as %d. The
    statement that causes this bug is useless and removed.


Upstream patch:

Affected versions:
aria2-1.5.x && aria2-1.6.x (aria2-1.3.x is not vulnerable)

Could you allocate a CVE identifier?

Thanks && Regards, Jan.
