This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

neon did not properly handle embedded NUL characters in X.509
certificates when comparing host names. Attackers could exploit that
to spoof SSL servers (CVE-2009-2408).

Specially crafted XML documents that contain a large number of nested
entity references could cause neon to consume large amounts of CPU and
memory (CVE-2009-2473).

Solution :

Update the affected libneon-devel packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
