The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated cadaver package is now available that fixes a vulnerability
in neon which could be exploitable by a malicious DAV server.
cadaver is a command-line WebDAV client that uses inbuilt code from
neon, an HTTP and WebDAV client library.
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 cadaver. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0398 to this issue.
Users of cadaver are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a patch correcting this issue.
This issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
