>> Bug 151: Fix memory corruption due to possible overflow in SLPFoldWhiteSpace
>> 
>> 2015-12-01

"possible overflow" in the 2015 reference was not interpreted to mean
a definitive statement of a security problem, and the defining
reference is the
http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2016/09/27/4 posting
itself, which occurred in 2016. In other words, either a CVE-2015-
number or a CVE-2016- number may have been reasonable but we chose the
latter.
