Fedora Core 2 : neon-0.24.5-2.2 (2004-130)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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 CVE-2004-0398 to this issue. This update includes
packages with a patch for this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
