Subject: CVE Request -- MapServer -- Stack based buffer overflow [was: Re:
 Re: CVE Request -- MapServer -- SQL injections in OGC filter
 encoding and in WMS time support.]

multiple SQL injection flaws, the other for the stack based buffer 
overflow issue) seem to be necessary in this case (due different
versions affected):


Thank you && Regards, Jan.
