Hi!

libproxy 0.4.9 fixes a buffer overflow reported by Tomas Mraz:

http://code.google.com/p/libproxy/source/detail?r=853
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/libproxy/VxZ8No7mT0E

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2012-4504

Upstream announcement also mentions another issue - CVE-2012-4505.
It is related, but different problem that was found in pre-0.4
versions while investigating if they were affected by
CVE-2012-4504.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2012-4505

Please use CVE-2012-4521 for this issue.

Wasn't this rather a CVE notification than a CVE request? At least 
it looked like this to me. The announcement mentions two CVE.
