 Even Rouault discovered that curl incorrectly handled large file names
 when doing TFTP transfers. A remote attacker could use this issue to

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
  curl                            7.22.0-3ubuntu4.18
