Still no build request.
Comment 2 Richard Dawe 2005-03-12 10:40:29 EST
Sadly prozilla also has some remotely exploitable security
holes. I've packaged up prozilla, which fixes these holes
thanks to some gentoo folks, but this is still in pre-release testing.

I'll let you know when prozilla is released.

prozilla is available <http://prozilla.genesys.ro/?p=download>. From NEWS:

"* Support for downloading files > 2GB.

* Fix a remotely exploitable format string security bug.

* Fix bugs in the handling of bad command-line options. Previously
  prozilla would return the success status code, even though it failed.
  Now it returns failure.

* Fix a segfault. This occurred when prozilla could not assemble a file
  due to lack of disk space and the user chose to abort the operation.

* Fix some typos."
