MBHttp::Download function of lib/http.cpp as well as several possible
buffer overflows in lib/rdfparse.c.
A remote attacker could be able to execute arbitrary code or cause
Denial of Service by making use of an overly long "Location" header in
an HTTP redirect message from a malicious server or a long URL in
malicious RDF feeds.
There is no known workaround at this time.
