Problem description

A vulnerability in libcurl's NTLM function can overflow a stack-based buffer if given too long a user name or domain name in NTLM authentication is enabled and either a) pass a user and domain name to libcurl that together are longer than 192 bytes or b) allow (lib)curl to follow HTTP redirects and the new URL contains a URL with a user and domain name that together are longer than 192 bytes. Wget, as of version 1.10, uses the NTLM code from libcurl and is also vulnerable to this issue. The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
