Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 1
Name : neon
Version : 0.24.5
Release : 2.1
Summary : An HTTP and WebDAV client library
Description :
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 allows a heap buffer overflow in a date parsing routine. An attacker could create a malicious WebDAV server in such a way as to allow 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 CAN-2004-0398 to this issue. This update includes packages with a patch for this issue.
