the original fix for CVE-2007-4965 did miss two chunks, which are included in
r65878 on the 2.5 branch.

>   CVE-2008-2315

this is r65334 on the 2.5 branch and r65335 on the trunk:
Security patches from Apple:  prevent int overflow when allocating memory
this was already checked in, with an added NEWS item in 2.4.5. Moved this
to 2.4.6.
