Package : cadaver
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0398

Stefan Esser discovered a problem in neon, an HTTP and WebDAV client library, which is also present in cadaver, a command-line client for WebDAV server. User input is copied into variables not large enough for all cases. This can lead to an overflow of a static heap variable.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.18.0-1woody3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.22.1-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your cadaver package.
