#1958 httpAdapter can crash on bad content length

sfcb (1090)

httpAdapter contains a heap overflow that is caused by an HTTP request with the Content-Length value being smaller than the actual size of the payload. The affect of this bug can cause the handling HTTP process to crash. If the request is specially crafted, arbitrary code execution could occur.
