Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Multiple format string vulnerabilities in cadaver

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200404-14
(Multiple format string vulnerabilities in cadaver)


Cadaver code includes the neon library, which in versions 0.24.4 and
previous is vulnerable to multiple format string attacks. The latest
version of cadaver uses version 0.24.5 of the neon library, which makes it
immune to this vulnerability.

vulnerability can permit a malicious remote server to execute arbitrary code
on the client with the rights of the user using cadaver.

Workaround

A workaround is not currently known for this issue. All users are advised
to upgrade to the latest version of the affected package.
