Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 1 2004-129: neon

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the neon package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-129 (neon).

neon is an HTTP and WebDAV client library, with a C interface

providing a high-level interface to HTTP and WebDAV methods along
with a low-level interface for HTTP request handling. neon
supports persistent connections, proxy servers, basic, digest and
Kerberos authentication, and has complete SSL support.

Update Information:

Stefan Esser discovered a flaw in the neon library which permits a heap
buffer overflow in a date parsing routine. A possible hacker could create a
malicious WebDAV server in such a way as to permit arbitrary code
execution on the client should a user connect to it using a neon-based
application which uses the date parsing routines, such as cadaver.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0398 to this issue. This update includes
packages with a patch for this issue.
