Fedora Core 1 : neon-0.24.5-1 (2004-103)

High Nessus Plugin ID 13686


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Multiple format string vulnerabilities in neon 0.24.4 and earlier allow remote malicious WebDAV servers to execute arbitrary code.

Updated packages were made available in April 2004 however the original update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at that time.

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.


Update the affected neon, neon-debuginfo and / or neon-devel packages.
