[slackware-security]  curl/wget (SSA:2005-310-01)

New curl packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and -current, and new wget packages are available for Slackware 8.1,
9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current.  These address a buffer
overflow in NTLM handling which may present a security problem, though
no public exploits are known at this time.

Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
