---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-129
2004-05-19
---------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
