Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:049
Date: May 19th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.2

Problem Description:

It was discovered that in portions of neon, sscanf() is used in an unsafe manner. This will result in an overflow of a static heap variable.

The updated packages provide a patched libneon to correct these problems.
