Log Message:
Security fix for SA17119:

"A vulnerability was found in W3C Libwww, which potentially can be exploited
by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the
"HTBoundary_put_block()" function when processing multipart MIME data. This
may be exploited to cause an illegal memory access past the end of the input
buffer via specially crafted multipart MIME data.

Successful exploitation can potentially cause an application that uses Libwww
to crash."
